Business Development, General Assembly
Renee started with General Assembly SF in early 2014 after launching edtech company Enroll, an online education marketplace. While working under a VC, Renee navigated the SF startup scene from fundraising and startup competitions, to hiring a team and building wireframes/content from scratch. Before taking the entrepreneurial route, she was an international educator encompassing many roles, including teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL), tour managing to 40+ countries for Stanford's Travel/Study Alumni program and leading service-learning projects with a variety of human rights programs abroad.
Some of her proudest accomplishments have been coining the phrases 'follow the funding' and 'have you met Ted', when guiding new entrepreneurs in the space, executing the environmental education/videography Onda Verde project in the Galápagos Islands and founding/directing the first annual Cape Coast AIDS Race in Ghana. Renee graduated with her BA in Latin American studies from California State Polytechnic, San Luis Obispo. While completing her MA in Human Rights Education at the University of San Francisco, she developed a study abroad program for US students to study in Cuba. Her work at GA is built on an ethic of enduring commitment to blur the lines between education and industry and inspire our next generation of innovators.
