We're excited to host a conversation with Patricia Nakache, who has spent the last 12 years supporting and cultivating some of the most exciting young companies in Silicon Valley as a general partner at Trinity Ventures. Just stop and think about the amazing progress, the history-making successes and the headline grabbing non-successes she's seen. What could you learn from Patricia?

BeachMint, Care.com, Kixeye, PayScale, Ruby Ribbon, and ThredUp, and previously:

Since joining Trinity Ventures in 1999, Patricia has focused on funding companies launching innovative online consumer and business services. She is particularly interested in the impact of social media and mobile on the next generation of Internet services. Her articles have appeared in Forbes, Fortune and on TechCrunch.

– Tim Draper, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the enthusiastic group of women. This is the closest I have seen to a true grass-roots organization. I have attended many women’s networking groups over the years, and yours is very unique in that it has a true vibe of collaboration and support, and the women are very impressive, each and every one of them.
