Program Manager, Astia Angels
Jill had a 25+ year career investing in small public growth equities. Her last 15 years were spent at Fred Alger Management where she was an integral part of the firm’s rebuilding after the devastation of 9/11. She retired as a firm partner in 2016 responsible for billions of small cap funds under management. Prior to her return to Alger, Jill worked at J&W Seligman and Chase Asset Management as a small cap equity portfolio manager. She has a BA in economics from Yale University, an MBA from New York University and a CFA designation.
She has recently become a member of the executive board of the nonprofit Rescuing Leftover Cuisine whose objective is to feed the hungry while reducing food waste. She is excited to use her expertise and passion about small companies and startups while contributing to the mission of Astia to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs.
