Cybersecurity, SaaS, Supply Chain and Automation

feyza_haskaraman-BIO

As a principal at Menlo Ventures, Feyza focuses on soon-to-breakout consumer, fintech, and enterprise SaaS companies.

Prior to Menlo, Feyza worked as an engineer at various companies in different growth stages, including Nucleus Scientific (now Indigotech), Fitbit, and Analog Devices. Her exposure to a wide range of tasks and opportunities led Feyza to grow curious about the way companies operate. Feyza pursued a career in business management when she joined McKinsey & Company after graduating from MIT. At McKinsey, she consulted multi-billion-dollar technology companies on strategy and operations, in addition to early-stage startups. Working with startups piqued her interest in venture capital and she joined Insight Partners. After working on a slew of successful investments, Feyza became even more inspired to work closely with founders throughout their journey from series seed and beyond.

Feyza hails from Turkey, where her father and grandfather—both entrepreneurs—often discussed business at the dinner table. She credits them with inspiring and encouraging her interest in how early businesses gain traction.

Feyza holds master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from MIT. Passionate about STEM education, she previously taught science in Nepal and Malawi. When she’s not working, you can find Feyza running, playing tennis, and critiquing indie movies.
