Ana does Business Development for Udacity, where she creates partnerships with organizations that want to hire Udacity nanodegree graduates.
Prior to Udacity, Ana did venture capital investing for Kapor Capital, a seed stage social impact VC firm in Oakland, CA. Much of that work related to educational investments and a deep participation in diversity initiatives through the Kapor Center for Social impact. Her personal passion lies in increasing diversity in Silicon Valley, and she frequently puts on ad-hoc events to further this goal. She also volunteers with nonprofits looking to increase the pipeline for kids of color to enter into STEM professions.
She blogs about VC, diversity and education. Feel free to follow her on Twitter: @ana_d_h or at her blog: www.anadiazhernandez.com
