Baiyin Zhou, Senior Associate


Experience

Baiyin spends her time getting to know the people who build B2B software companies, and figuring out ways to help them grow and thrive.

Prior to joining Ascent in 2016, she worked at OpenView Venture Partners and ClearSky Power & Technology Fund, both B2B technology investors with a focus on helping companies post-investment.  She has worked with companies such as Logikcull (legal tech), Lesson.ly (HR and sales), Swiftstack (infrastructure), Resilient Systems (acquired by IBM), and Cylance (cybersecurity).




Education

Baiyin earned a BBA in finance and accounting from The College of William and Mary, and minored in Art and Art History. When not spending time at the art studio, she focused her efforts on leading Net Impact, a non-profit organization focused on sustainable business practices and CSR.




Everything Else

Besides binge watching Netflix with her rescue pup Hunter, Baiyin plays tennis on the weekends, travels not to destinations but to loved ones, and is learning photography. She strongly believes in giving back to the community, and is currently most involved with ABLE (Access to Better Learning Education). She also brings together Boston’s informal group of junior VCs.
