I am Alyse Killeen, general and managing partner at Stillmark. AMA
Hello Everyone! My name is Alyse (@AlyseKilleen), Founding managing partner at Stillmark (@HelloStillmark), the first Bitcoin-focused venture capital firm. Started in 2019, the firm invests in and supports companies and entrepreneurs that are building products, services and technologies to support the Bitcoin ecosystem.
We currently have 11 portfolio companies (companies in which we have invested) including some names with whom you may be rather familiar, some you may not (yet) – but all that you should want to know.
And a little more about me: I’ve been in the venture capital industry since 2012 and began advising and investing in Bitcoin and blockchain startups in 2013. I serve on the board of Blockstream, Satoshi Energy and IBEX Mercado. I love working with founders and their teams, helping them to achieve their ambitions while changing the world by leveraging Bitcoin to create equitable participation in the financial economy.
