“An entrepreneur is a person with the vision, courage, and tenacity to look at the status quo and say, 'I can do better.' It is an honor and privilege to work with people who never settle for 'good enough' and relentlessly pursue their vision for a better world.”
Emily Melton
Managing Partner

Emily is a co-founder of Threshold. She is looking for entrepreneurs who are genuinely excited about being agents of change and have an almost irrational drive to make things better. Her portfolio includes BetterUp, Brightline, Calibrate, Clearing, Elation Health, HumanFirst, Imagen, Livongo (NASDAQ: LVGO), Ooda Health (acquired by Cedar), Redfin (NASDAQ: RDFN), Shift (NASDAQ: SFT), Tia, Transcarent, Verge Genomics, Vineti, Vital, Viz, and Wellframe (acquired by HealthEdge).

Emily serves as the chair of the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) board of directors. She is also an active founding member of All Raise, a non-profit dedicated to improving access for women and others to start and invest in companies. In 2019, Forbes recognized Emily on the Midas Brink List as an investor destined for success based on her reputation and momentum in the industry.

Early in Emily's career, she sourced investments in Box (NYSE: BOX), Meebo (Google), Kudo (Google), RichRelevance, and Flux (MTV Networks). She has also invested in and advised a number of early-stage companies including Pulse Network (LinkedIn), Notion, and Poshmark.

A Stanford grad with a BA in political philosophy with honors and an MBA, Emily is drawn to disruptive ideas and technologies that have the potential to radically change consumer, enterprise, and healthcare markets.
