We’re excited to welcome our newest employee, Kayla Kavanaugh, to Grand Ventures! As an analyst, Kayla will work with the rest of the team to identify and assess potential investment opportunities. She will also assist in monitoring and reporting the performance of our portfolio companies.
Kayla recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a double major in Economics & Strategy and Political Science. She remained highly engaged with the startup ecosystem during her undergraduate career, participating in internships with both Venture for America and Capital Innovators, a top-ranked accelerator based in St. Louis.
Kayla was also invited to become a Venture Fellow with the Michigan Venture Capital Association. The MVCA’s selective fellowship program aims to promote a diverse and inclusive environment within Michigan’s venture capital community.
