Welcome Sharon!

by Ali Rowghani8/19/2016

Sharon Pope will be joining YC to run programs and marketing for the YC Continuity Fund.

Sharon was most recently the Chief Marketing Officer for Green Dot Corporation (inventor of the prepaid debit card; creator of the first fully mobile bank account, GoBank). Prior to that, she ran marketing & PR at Loopt (acquired by Green Dot) and managed PR and content for a range of tech companies while at San Francisco PR agencies.

We’re excited for Sharon to help engage growth stage founders and YC alumni.
