Inspired by identifying evolving human needs, dedicated to supporting visionary founders who are innovating in every aspect of life.
Modern dominoes have been around for centuries, and each country has their own version of the game. As a child, Eurie’s favorite way to play was to line them all up in a particular order, and knock them all down with one tile. Turns out, this approach is very applicable to the startup world. Ultimately, to be a successful entrepreneur, one must have both the vision to chart a path forward that others aren’t able to see, and the foresight to put each step in the right order to gain the momentum needed to win.
As a former entrepreneur, Eurie has deep personal appreciation for the emotional commitment and relentless passion required of a founder, allowing her to be radically empathetic to the entrepreneurs she works with, while being realistic and honest in the advice she offers. Her point-of-view reflects her practical nature and her penchant for seeing the big picture through the mess of fighting fires day to day. Inspired by identifying evolving consumer needs, Eurie seeks opportunities to leverage technology to optimize and innovate every aspect of life and to find the right entrepreneur with the vision to take on the challenge.
Eurie joined Forerunner Ventures in 2012 and has invested in companies spanning health and wellness, travel, personal care / beauty, supply chain automation, edtech, and sustainable food.
