Founders Tell All: Stephanie Palmeri

We are thrilled to have Steph Palmeri, Principal at SoftTech VC, joining us in San Francisco for our “Founders Tell All” panel next week to discuss funding in the fashion tech space.

At SoftTech, Steph invests in early stage consumer internet companies, including next-generation commerce, mobile services, and SaaS. SoftTech’s impressive portfolio includes, Eventbrite, True & Co, and Twitter (yes, Twitter) to name a few.

Steph has worked for Accenture, Estee Lauder and Clinique, as well as built SaaS applications for companies such as JP Morgan and Diageo. Prior to joining SoftTech VC and moving to San Francisco, Steph was an Associate with early-stage venture fund NYC Seed and launched the NYC SeedStart incubator. She has an MBA from Columbia Business school and graduated magna cum laude from Villanova University with degrees in both Marketing and Management Information Systems.

Not only is Steph extremely intelligent and well versed in the VC world, she is also passionate about the fashion tech space and as funny as they come. Honestly, we couldn’t think of anyone more perfect for this event.
