Hello! I'm Ellen. TL;DR I'm a partner at Boldstart where I invest in developer tooling, and occasionally other enterprise or SaaS products.

I like to write and currently send a weekly-ish Substack. I speak on the same topics. Outside of devtools, I angel invest with small checks and support Oliners through parcelb.vc.

Before this, I started Dark, a backend programming language integrated with its editor and infra. My career before that was mostly in Product. I was the first person at Lola, where we combined the best of technology and people for travel planning. I also worked on Kickstarter and Office Mobile.

For fun, I read lots of books. I also like (and can talk at length about) triathlons, Peloton, crossword puzzles, cooking, baking, and cocktails. You can find me on Twitter or email me.
