Gloria Gennaro is on the Deal Sourcing team at Akkadian Ventures. In 2021, she relocated to Miami, FL to participate in the city’s evolving tech ecosystem and grow the firm’s presence on the East Coast. She is currently a CFA Level I Candidate.
In 2018, Gloria started a company to increase property revenue and improve tenant satisfaction for off- campus student housing. One year and 14 property partnerships later, her largest client deferred their contract by almost four years. With that, Gloria realized her passion and experience for startups would be better utilized by pivoting career paths. She accepted an Analyst position at Hamilton Miller Investments, a niche alternatives firm, for two years before transitioning into her current role at Akkadian Ventures.
In 2017, Gloria operationally rebranded three Manhattan restaurants and managed their growth infrastructure collaboration with National Geographic’s Times Square exhibit.
In 2015, Gloria led SpeedETab’s expansion from Miami to NYC (acquired by NASDAQ: WIX), launching their services in more than 30 locations within less than one year.
