Jenna Birch

VP, Narrative & Communications at NFX

Jenna has spent her entire career as an entrepreneur—even before she knew she was one. She started working as a freelance journalist in college, writing for The Washington Post, HuffPost, Fortune, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and Yahoo. She also published a research-backed book about modern relationships, THE LOVE GAP (Grand Central Publishing), in 2018. Soon after, Jenna was recruited to join a new dating-app startup as a co-founder. She discovered how she could merge her love of storytelling and understanding of communications to help startups and VCs establish a differentiated presence in market.

Prior to NFX, Jenna led content and communications for Forerunner Ventures, an early-stage venture firm focused on consumer investments. She was previously also a consultant, helping startups, VCs, and private equity firms develop content, generate integrated communications plans, and pinpoint compelling GTM narratives to engage internal and external stakeholders.
