Launching her Own Firm, GV’s Youngest Partner Enters the Realm of Entrepreneurship


Former GV partner Terri Burns is starting her own venture capital company, Type Capital, to embark on a new chapter in her career.

According to the sources, the business will cut pre-seed and seed-sized checks in order to concentrate on early-stage entrepreneurs. She is still in the early phases of expanding her company and hasn’t made any investments yet. She declined to provide any information about her ambitions or the fund’s size, but she did confirm that her new company had been launched.

She created history in 2020 as the youngest and first black female partner in the firm when she was 26 years old.

Terri Burns started out as an assistant product manager at Twitter. Later, as a Kauffman Fellow, she joined the computer science department at NYU. She became the youngest member of the university’s board of trustees when she was elected in 2021.
