Gracie managed to avoid the fintech craze while living in the Bay Area, but it eventually caught up with her. While she had a knack for checking Google Finance daily in elementary school, professionalizing these habits took a bit longer (10+ years).
As a partner based out of Foundation’s New York office, Gracie focuses on banking, embedded payments, and vertical software. Prior to joining Foundation, she helped lead the consumer fintech practice at Stripes, where she pursued global opportunities and sourced the firm’s first investment in LatAm.
Gracie earned her B.A. in symbolic systems with distinction from Stanford. She is the proud mother of a French bulldog, Misha, who prefers to roll around on sidewalks rather than actually walk on them.
