Introducing Ari Wright: Venture Capitalist
Growing up in Oakland, CA, Ari felt she never had any real passions or talents. She started running cross-country her freshman year of high school and it changed her life. She loved the structure that it gave her and that translated into every other aspect of her life and helped her excel in school. Ari ended up getting recruited to compete in college and was a competitive college athlete. She loved challenging herself and chose to study what she heard was ‘the hardest major’, Biomedical Engineering. She wasn’t great at math or science, but really loved pushing herself and wanted to solve big problems in the world. She did a graduate program in Engineering Green Technology and worked for a Venture Capital firm investing in start-ups transforming our energy system and tackling climate change.
