Six-time Midas lister Theresia Gouw focuses on software and security technology at Aspect Ventures, a firm that she cofounded in 2014 with Jennifer Fonstad. Prior to that she was a general partner for 15 years at Accel; she left to co-found Aspect with the goal of bringing collaboration back to Series A companies and bridging the gap between angel investors and larger multi-stage VC firms. Gouw invested early in the real estate search engine Trulia (IPO 2012) and more recently Cato Networks, which offers next-generation security services on demand, as well as ForeScout, a cybersecurity unicorn that is a leader in network and IoT security, and Exabeam, a leader in user behavior analytics for cybersecurity. She’s also an investor in The Muse, a career advice website for millennials. A first-generation immigrant and engineer by training, Gouw is a passionate supporter of causes that support immigration and STEM education, including DonorsChoose.org. In 2016 she gave a TEDx talk about diversity and innovation, “How Entrepreneurs Can Help the American Dream Get Its Mojo Back.”
