Katie Keller

Investor

SaaS, Consumer, Cloud Infrastructure, Cybersecurity

Katie is an investor at Menlo Ventures, focusing on investments in SaaS and cloud infrastructure. With her background in product management, an interest in entrepreneurship, and a lifelong pursuit of knowledge, venture capital was a natural next step in her career. She enjoys helping companies build tools that make day-to-day work easier and improve people’s lives, and relishes the opportunity to dive deep into the computer infrastructure that supports those tools.

Prior to Menlo, Katie was a product manager at Salesforce. Upon graduation from Stanford, she joined Salesforce’s second-ever Associate Product Manager (APM) program, where she became immersed in the product development lifecycle. She worked on projects ranging from CRM and e-commerce to field service management and healthcare, and also helped shape recruiting and mentorship within the APM program.

At Stanford, Katie received a B.A. in economics and a Master’s in computer science. Outside of her studies, she reported for the Stanford Daily on politics and local news; she then went on to serve as managing editor for the Stanford Daily Magazine, a bi-quarterly, long-form publication. In another life, she would have liked to be a beat reporter on Capitol Hill.

Katie is a Bay Area native and lives in San Francisco. In her free time, she enjoys piano, soccer, skiing, and traveling—most recently to Peru, Chile, and Argentina.
