Laura is one of the most well-networked people I know, and on top of that, everybody likes her, so her connections are always happy to do so ... mething to help her.
Elizabeth Yin
They're my advisor: VegasTechFund  •  Co-founder, Hustle Con and CEO and co-founder, LaunchBit. Stanford grad.
Laura has been working at the Vegas Tech Fund for the last couple of years in several different capacities. She's sourced deals, done due d ... iligence, connected people and has built the Vegas Tech community. Laura came into the VTF job as a new grad, knowing nothing about venture capital or the software industry and quickly emerged as one of the best venture associates I've met. She's sharp, quick to understand new situations, and very hard-working.

Lauren Jung
They're my advisor: VegasTechFund  •  Founder, The Shelf. Previously Web Design / Frontend Development, Freelance.
I have known Laura for more than a year, first in the capacity of her being part of our investor fund and more recently (and more closely) a ... s an advisor through ROCETEER. She is super helpful and understands the challenges entrepreneurs face. Our company is now looking for a growth hacker and we seeked Laura's help. She has already made us tons of introductions to influential people within a span of a couple of weeks and is always getting our name out to other folks in the network. While she was part of the Vegas Tech Fund, she was a central part of organizational committee to stitch together founder events in the downtown Vegas. I'm not surprised that she has now founded her own company that focuses on helping founders---I'm looking forward to see how she is going to grow ROCETEER into a world class mentor network! In summary, Laura is an awesome friend, advisor, and a great connector!
