Natsuki leads DNX's post-investment support for portfolio companies. She joined the firm in 2015 and built the firm's operational process by leveraging her network within a venture world. Since then, she's been focusing on building the firm's portfolio platform team, where she supports early-stage portfolio companies. Before joining DNX, Natsuki was a Marketing & Sales specialist at Nissan Motors in Yokohama, Japan, overseeing the dealerships to increase Nissan's sales volume in the Japan market. Through that experience, she learned the importance of aligning business strategy and people strategy in order to create the best performing organizations. Natsuki holds a BA in Sociology from Keio University in Tokyo. As a happy transplant in the Bay Area, Natsuki spends her weekends on all kinds of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, and training for a half marathon (with a speed of walking).
