Show Notes

Today, I'm joined by Anna Barber, Investing Partner at M13, which is an LA based Series A venture fund focused on investing in the future of consumer technology. Understanding the future of consumer behavior is M13’s obsession, and it is why their funds have demonstrated repeatable success. After making early investments in direct-to-consumer brands (M13 participated in seed and Series A of 15 $1B companies), today M13 invests in the enabling technologies that power the future of work, health, commerce, and money. Anna previously worked at McKinsey & Co as a Strategy Consultant and VP Product at Petstore.com.

Seed to Harvest is a podcast focused on stories & tactics from a diverse array of investors, founders, and creators, hosted by Paige Finn Doherty, a founding partner at Behind Genius Ventures and author of Seed to Harvest, an illustrated children's book for adults.
