We like start-ups, which is why we each spent years building them. Before reconnecting at Burst, we worked closely together at Yelp, which we helped grow from 10-5000 teammates, with an IPO along the way. Now we work with start-ups in a different form: as the investors you can call as needed to ask "have you seen this before?" We probably have.

Wendy led and scaled four different functions at Yelp: revenue operations, customer support, investor relations and new markets. She has also held leadership roles at Bia-Echo Foundation and the University of California. She is a graduate of Cal and HBS.
