Growing the MaC Family — Welcoming Haley Farnsworth
At MaC Venture Capital our mission is to invest in visionary founders building the future we want to see, and to build MaC into a multi-generational franchise. We fully believe that the next great cohort of venture firms will have teams led by women and people of color. Their portfolios will reflect the diversity of the world in which we live, and will solve problems felt by the 99%, not just the 1%. This is the type of firm we are creating at MaC.
In pursuit of this goal, we strive to add exceptional individuals to our team. We are therefore incredibly excited to welcome Haley Farnsworth to MaC’s investment team. Haley joins us today as an investment partner.
We are confident that Haley will grow to become a phenomenal VC. Her wide-ranging experience serves as a great foundation for Haley to be a remarkable investor and help MaC continue to level up as a firm. Her desire to drive change, industry expertise, eagerness to learn, and affinity for disruptive ideas are all qualities that make a great seed-stage investor.
Haley was born and raised in Southern California. She attended Stanford University where she received a BA in Communication with a focus on media and technology, and a minor in Earth Systems. During her time at Stanford, Haley was a member of Stanford Women in Design, where she helped lead the marketing team. She was also a diver on the Women’s Varsity Swimming and Diving team, winning PAC12 Freshman of the Year and three NCAA national team championships over the course of her time. Her grit and ambition are what led us to recruit her to the MaC family.
Prior to MaC, Haley drove pipeline generation at Snowflake with Fortune 500 accounts in Southern California, specifically focusing on FinServ, Healthcare, and Media corporations. Through this experience, she gained an in-depth understanding of the data space and obtained valuable insight on the inner-workings of high growth tech companies. Her goal as an investor is to optimize the balance of creativity and innovation with data-driven decisions.
We believe Haley will have a palpable impact at MaC. Her passion for creating meaningful relationships with founders and investing in revolutionary ideas is directly aligned with our vision to propel early-stage startups that will help build a better future. We are thrilled to welcome her to the MaC family.
