About our Guest: Dessy Levinson is a story expert, investor, and entrepreneur who balances reason and creativity to grow businesses that are driven by both metrics and vision. She is passionate about spatial computing (VR/AR/XR), digitally-native consumer brands, and wellness, leveraging her creative and psychology background to assess and assist companies at the Seed, Growth Seed, and Series A stages.

Dessy spent over a decade as a creative director, acquiring a deep understanding of the digital consumer mindset while leading marketing initiatives for Colgate Palmolive, Gerber, Century 21, Mall of America, and A&E, as well as for grass-roots viral campaigns in entertainment. She now deploys her experience to create strategic business narratives that empower fundraising, customer acquisition, and hiring. She serves on the advisory boards of The WXR fund and MAP Lab, and is a mentor at Declare, ERA, WeWork Labs, TechStars, Combine Accelerator, The French-American CreativeLab, and Cornell Tech's Startup Studio.

About 645 Ventures: 645 Ventures makes deeply-researched investments in institutional Seed to Series A rounds for exceptional companies who demonstrate stellar early results in the areas of market validation, product differentiation, team strength, and brand narrative. We focus primarily on software and Internet companies in areas such as SaaS, application software, financial software, consumer internet, and online marketplaces. We make a majority of our investments in those sectors and prioritize proven business models. We make a minority of our investments in new technology areas where deep technical innovation is occurring and where we believe there is will be a large future market opportunity. These sectors generally leverage the Internet or software in a fundamental way. For these companies, we look for deep technology differentiation plus early market validation or clear opportunity for such. We invest in companies that sell to both enterprise/SMB customers as well as direct to consumers.
