An Insider's view of M13

What are some social events your company does?

At least twice a year, M13 gets the team together for a week full of internal events and team building that we call "Dock-in". We have events such as trivia, scavenger hunts, ropes course, and team dinners, but the goal is ALWAYS to have fun and build connections outside of work.


Mission Control

How does the company support your career growth?

I’m given the room and the support to tackle really challenging problems. I’ve grown twice as much in my 5 months at M13 than I had in 2 years at my previous position because I am trusted and encouraged to learn by doing.


Community Coordinator

What is your vision for the company?

When Carter and I were starting M13, we knew the world didn’t need just another venture capital firm. Starting a platform, with an approach that’s designed to evolve venture capital? That’s really exciting. The opportunity to have a different value prop for our companies and for the people joining our platform energizes me every day.
