Cristin Pacifico

Manager, Venturing

I have the vision of an investor, the mind of an operator, and the heart of an entrepreneur. At TechNexus, these skills work in unison. As a member of the investment team, I think strategically about how startups and large corporations can work together to drive innovation. Capital fuels growth.

Prior to my time at TechNexus, I worked in various operating and investing roles. As an early employee at Home Chef, I worked on strategic finance initiatives, including the Kroger merger. I began my career at Robert W. Baird in investment banking, working with industrial businesses solving problems similar to the corporate partners we work with today.

A proud Domer, I serve as Illinois Regional Director for the University of Notre Dame’s Young Alumni Board. I also serve on the board of JIFFI, a microlending non-profit I co-founded during my time in undergrad. Outside of work, I love attending live comedy shows, exploring Italian cuisine, and taking walks on Lake Shore Drive – Chicago weather permitting!
