Natalie Dillon


Natalie came home from school one day with a simple note from her kindergarten teacher – Natalie is good at patterns. Decades later, from spotting her opponents’ errors on the tennis courts at Stanford, to studying financial markets on Wall Street, to curating playlists on SoundCloud, Natalie always loves identifying consumer trends and meeting people who defy the odds.

Prior to Maveron, Natalie was at Susa Ventures, a premier seed-stage fund in San Francisco. At Susa, Natalie worked with the team to source and help diligence several investments, largely in the consumer space. Before Susa, Natalie was a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs and a research associate at Silicon Valley Bank, where her passion for studying consumer businesses, building relationships, and identifying outliers flourished. Stories about Natalie speak to her hustle, relationship building nature, and intellectual curiosity. 

A San Francisco native, Natalie wrote her first college paper on the rise of coffee shops as co-working spaces that she saw take off in the Mission district. She’s a sucker for a well designed coffee shop, hole in the wall taco joints, and a good sci-fi novel.
