Key Accomplishments

At my last company I was the first hire on the business side. I was able to make key investor intros and helped close our Series A round. I was also responsible for most of our early sales and partnerships (including first strategic and retail partners) and helped develop our go to market strategy based on early customer feedback. My primary skill sets are building key early relationships, sales and partnership strategy, but also improving processes and products (which is where I am focused now).

Annette Baltgian
We worked together at Recyclebank
Erika has drive, intellect and the ability to connect with others. Erika's greatest asset however is her passion which makes a great colleag ... ue and influencer.
Stacy Baum Taffet
They're my school
I met Erika at Harvard Business School and was immediately struck by her intelligence, ambition and resourcefulness. She has a long history ... of driving growth and capitalizing on opportunities across industries and organizations. She is also a talented leader, able to influence and inspire others to work toward a common goal. Any business would be lucky to have her on the team.
Kristy Schultz
They're my school
Erika has worked with startups (both as an early stage employee, and for VCs) for the past 7 years. She has been on my go-to list whenever I ... have a question or need advice on which path to choose, or what to do need. She's smart, experienced, and a dedicated team member.
Jessica Kates
They're my school
Erika is extremely passionate about the industry in which she has spent her entire career and is now an expert. Erika gets the job done, and ... has an outstanding network to help out whenever needed. She is also very creative and a very hard worker. Her sharp intelligence doesn't hurt either.
Emma Caddy
We worked together
Erika IS a great entrepreneur already! She has the ability to seemlessly move between different contexts and yet always perceive and seize ... opportunities to thrive and secure business growth within them. She is someone who can see the wood for the trees, and has the wits and wherewithal, tenacity and commitment to carve out growth for ventures she works with, using a combination of smarts and guile. She's a great networker - but not in a shallow user sense, rather in a warm, genuine way. When she does need contacts and support to progress her ventures she therefore never lacks for people to help her do it. She in sum has all the key qualities of an entreprneneur - flexible, versatile, adept, personable, sharp. She will moreover never compromise her values or short-change anyone on the way to achieving success. So if you want someone who will cut corners, be cutthroat and sacrifice people and brand integrity along the way she isnt the person for you. Ultimately, she's an entrepreneur who would be a real asset to any venture she works on or with.
