Things to note

I love thrifting and all things vintage. I am always wearing at least one article of thrifted clothing. There’s something so special about finding something you love in a thrift store, it’s like a hidden treasure.

My go-to activity when traveling in other countries is to visit grocery stores. I believe the best way to learn about a culture is through their food. I can spend an entire day just browsing every single aisle and looking at their products. If I had to choose a favorite grocery store, it would be Japan’s.

In the 7th grade I wanted to create a student documentary advocating for equal marriages. Unfortunately, I did not finish producing the documentary but a couple years later YouTube launched, I posted a recording of one interview I did. That video gained 6k views. That was the closest I have ever come to creating something viral.

Not every transaction needs to be all about business. Being a kind human being makes a huge impact.

Get writings from our founder, Brianne Kimmel, and updates from our community.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, but moved to San Francisco for college. I have been living in San Francisco for a little over a decade now and am absolutely in love with the city.

I spend most of my time on the computer for work and playing games, but on the weekends I go to the beach with my dog or hike Mt. Tamalpais.

During the winter, you’ll find me snowboarding the slopes of Tahoe.

Favorite Places and Local Businesses

  1. PetCorner located in the Richmond District of San Francisco, is the best pet supply store. It’s family owned and the prices are amazing. The best part is the customer service, they take the time to answer any questions I have and offer treats to my fur baby every visit. I love a store that knows my name and my dog’s!
  2. Kabuto in San Francisco, a sushi restaurant that has been around since 1982. It doesn’t look like much on the outside, but when you step foot into this restaurant you really feel as if you’re in Japan. The food is amazing, and the small restaurant makes for an intimate dinner. Hands down my favorite place for sushi in San Francisco.
  3. Fiat Lux in San Francisco is this beautiful woman owned jewelry store. I love all their jewelry there; the designs are stunning and non-traditional. The best part is that everything there uses recycled gold and is conflict-free!

What moment in your career are you the proudest of?

When I received my first Yelp review. I was working at a veterinary hospital at the time when a woman called asking to speak to a supervisor. It was a worried dog mom and I walked her through a surgery process. She said she spoke to other hospitals and did not feel comfortable with her fur baby in their care. I spent about an hour on the phone with her, just calming her nerves, and answering any questions she may have had. With this online review I learned that, not every transaction needs to be all about business and being a kind human being makes a huge impact.

What trends are you most excited about right now?

I am extremely excited about the growth in women gamers! With so many streaming platforms, more and more women are becoming involved with the online gaming community. I love to see that community continue to grow in hopes that it will end gender bias in gaming. I have always loved gaming but felt out of place online with the toxic masculinity. Now that it has become more common, I am able to connect with other female gamers! I love women supporting other women.

What founder inspires you the most?

Melinda Gates founder of Pivotal Ventures and co-founder of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She is an incredibly brilliant woman who has accomplished so much in her lifetime. Melinda absolutely crushed a male dominated world of engineers and continues to encourage more women to join this field. Even with such great success and wealth, she never lost sight of her integrity and her focus on bettering lives around the world.

How do you make your worklife better?

Taking a few seconds here and there to enjoy little things. One of the best things about working from home is that I can work beside my dog. I’ll just take a mental break to smother him with kisses or throw a toy around. I also like to open the window and let the breeze in, I wasn’t able to do that working in a high-rise downtown.

It’s hard for investors to build value in companies they invest in, but Brianne embodies the thing that she wants to help with. She works hard to get in on the best deals and she has this thesis on remote work, and side hustles. This is the next generation of younger entrepreneurs, and they have the tools to have multiple revenue streams.

Brianne's network is phenomenal. She's also willing to offer support in other ways, like flying cross-country for one of our company's happy hours. She goes the extra mile.

Brianne has managed to invest in some great companies, and has a good pulse on the future of remote and hybrid work and the need for modern tools for people to collaborate, and that has hugely accelerated. She had good insight from the get-go in 2019, which has become more true.
