Alana is an entrepreneur, UX designer, and writer. She previously founded the edtech company Caila and participated in Parallel18’s accelerator in Puerto Rico. Since then, she’s dedicated her career towards promoting entrepreneurship on the island. She was a Contributing Writer for Women at Forbes where she wrote stories about entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico and Latin America; she worked in community development with the startup NeedsList after Hurricane María; and she currently conducts research on startup ecosystem development in second cities. She also works as a Venture Associate with a group of aspiring Latino VC and angel investors. Our goal is to increase Latino representation in the venture capital space, as Latinx employees represent only 4% of the venture capital workforce.
