Starting a business is not for everyone.

"Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart," says Kirsten Green. "It takes guts, determination and confidence to believe in your unique ideas and a tremendous amount of self-awareness."

As the founder of San Francisco-based VC firm Forerunner Ventures, she is constantly surrounded by these ambitious entrepreneurs -- people she is looking to help scale their business. Not only does Green's firm provide funding to propel startups to the next level but also other resources like guidance and key introductions -- something she finds extremely gratifying.

"One of the most satisfying rewards of moving through a career is gaining the experience and wisdom to hopefully make continually better decisions," says Green. "Sharing this with people you respect and playing a mentor role is not only a chance to give back, but I've found it to be personally very satisfying."

Since its inception in 2003, Forerunner Ventures has raised more than $100 million from leading insitutional investors. This influx of capital has allowed the business to invest in more than 30 early-stage companies, including Bonobos, Birchbox, Dollar Shave Club and Warby Parker.

Prior to launching Forerunner Ventures, Green has more than 20 years of investment experience, including positions at Bank of America and Deloitte & Touche.
