Since 2001, she has helped 38 companies raise over $167 million in VC funding. 8 of those companies have since been acquired.

Rebekah has also been extending her vast network of serial entrepreneurs and high quality startup engineers to CXOs to her clients; this has evolved into a formal recruiting service at RHP. RHP’s clients are both domestically and internationally based.
