Erin Martell

Manager, Venturing

As a previous founder and business consultant, I’m passionate about finding ways for entrepreneurs and corporations to help each other succeed. At TechNexus, I’m able to connect these business ecosystems while also investing in promising startups across the globe.

My focus at TechNexus is to build impactful relationships between startups and our corporate partners. To do this, you’ll find me sourcing new companies, performing due diligence, engaging with post-investment collaborations and conducting venture operations. For venture operations, I work on constructing systems for due diligence, designing internal processes and managing relationships with our founders and corporate partners.

Prior to TechNexus I founded two startups in fitness technology which has given me a deep empathy for the entrepreneurial journey & experience building companies. I graduated with an MBA from the University of Chicago where I majored in Finance and Entrepreneurship and my undergraduate degree is in engineering from the University of Michigan.

Outside of work I enjoy distance running and teaching yoga. You can find me out on a nice day on the lake shore path with my bernedoodle or eating some raspberry gelato.
