In this episode of Money Tales, we talk with Zabreen Khan, who is an inspirational, young powerhouse. Zabreen grew up in Lahore, Pakistan; and, while she always knew that she would move to the US, her move occurred sooner than expected to distance her from the political situation developing in Pakistan at that time.
Zabreen currently works at Lead Edge Capital, a venture capital and growth equity firm based in New York. She focuses on software and internet investments and hopes to fund more female founders. Prior to Lead Edge, Zabreen worked at Facebook, Andreessen Horowitz and Disney. Outside of her day job, Zabreen is the Co-Founder of HerCapital, a nonprofit and community organization with the mission to educate and empower women on personal finance and investing.
Zabreen studied Science, Technology & Society and Creative Writing at Stanford University. Zabreen graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Honors and Distinction and received the Robert McGinn Award as Valedictorian in her department. She has been a longtime proponent of female empowerment, starting in her hometown of Lahore where she worked to promote women’s education. Zabreen was a speaker for the 2015 TEDx Women’s movement and continues to be involved in female focused organizations.
