Caitlin Strandberg has a resume that spans many industries and roles — from studying history in undergrad and a MBA from Harvard post-grad, to a stint in content creation and publishing in the music world, to hands-on founder apprenticeship at noteworthy startup, Behance — she’s appreciated many perspectives. However, over Arnold Salazars (an homage to her hometown in Florida that she shares with pro golfer Arnold Palmer) she explains that her drive is that of the eternal student – that once she overcomes a steep learning curve of one industry, she’s searching onward to the next. That path has served her well, and especially today, as a “student” of Venture at Firstmark Capital, where she brings her unique background to the table while she embarks on the path to becoming the next best investor.
What You’ll Learn:
- The value of having a great mentor
- How sometimes making a career out of your passion may not be the best move
- The benefit of being a “student” in your career – and how to approach new opportunities
