Marketing Partner

Meg Sloan

Meg manages all aspects of Foundation Capital’s brand, marketing, and communications efforts, and provides marketing counsel to the firm’s portfolio companies. She also oversees Foundation Capital’s relationship management and marketing systems.

Since joining the firm in 2014, Meg has helped lead a number of high-impact efforts, including Ashu Garg’s white paper “The Decade of the CMO,” and Charles Moldow’s white paper, “A Trillion Dollar Market by the People, For the People,” which firmly established “marketplace lending” as the term that defines the industry. She has also brought together thought leaders through gatherings like Foundation Capital’s CEO Collective, its CMO Tech Tour, and the Product Minds dinner series.

Prior to joining Foundation Capital, Meg held leadership roles at Facebook, eBay, and Microsoft.

At Facebook, Meg was one of the early members of the business marketing team. When she left for Foundation Capital, she was Director of Global Business Marketing. By then, she had introduced six new offices in the Asia-Pacific, orchestrated Facebook’s first “Hack for a Cause” event outside North America, and designed the Facebook Small Business Accelerator program.

From 2004 to 2009, Meg rose through the ranks of eBay’s marketing team. As Senior Director of Global Insights, she led the insights team for the eBay marketplace—integrating the marketing research efforts of eBay, PayPal, and Customer Support across 10 countries.

While at the helm of Microsoft’s marketing research functions, Meg won the grand prize in the 2004 David Ogilvy Excellence in Advertising Research Awards for the “Realizing Potential” corporate brand campaign.

Meg is an avid traveler, runner, and fashion/design junkie. She’s an alum of the University of Arizona and attended a performing arts high school for ballet. She still dances regularly. Meg, her husband Dave, and their two children live in Menlo Park, but escape to Santa Cruz at every opportunity.
