Sarah Hovde is the Head of Investor Relations at BankTech Ventures, and oversees day-to-day investor communication, fund administration, reporting, planning the Fund's Annual Investor Summit, and general engagement. BankTech Ventures endeavors to be a high-touch, high-tech, and high-impact fund that connects its Limited Partners (banks) with our Portfolio Companies (bank-enabling tech companies), ultimately building mutually beneficial vendor partnerships. To achieve this, we need substantial Limited Partner engagement and understanding of what's going on at the fund, plus our own insights into the Limited Partners' business needs to make the appropriate introductions. Prior to joining BTV, Sarah was the VP - Capital Markets of Merchants Mortgage, a Denver-based commercial & residential real estate firm, and prior to that, was an Underwriter turned Relationship Manager at Wells Fargo Capital Finance. Sarah received her Bachelor of Business Administration from University of Wisconsin - Madison, double-majoring in Finance & Real Estate. Sarah recently moved to Seattle from Colorado, and outside of work, enjoys exploring the city on weekdays and the mountains on weekends.
