Ask A VC: Floodgate's Ann Miura-Ko On Rajeev Motwani's Legacy And More


In this week’s episode of Ask A VC Floodgate’s co-founding partner Ann Miura-Ko joined us in the studio.

Miura-Ko and I chatted about her role at Stanford, where she is a lecturer in the school of engineering, and where she received a PhD focused on mathematical modeling of computer security. Miuro-Ko recalled how impactful and important the late Rajeev Motwani, a Stanford professor of computer science, was to PhD students in her program who wanted to found companies based on their research. As she explains in the video above, Motwani served as a mentor and advisor for Larry Page and Sergey Brin during the formative years of Google, and many more.

Miuro-Ko, who serves on the boards of Modcloth, Refinery29, Chloe and Isabel, Wanelo, Lyft, and others, also tackled reader questions around what’s next in mobile commerce and more.

Tune in above.
