Addie Arnold


VP of Operations & Culture |


As the VP of Culture & Operations at WomenVenture, Addie is responsible for the oversight of the organization’s integrated technology, facilities management, and internal HR. Her goal is to advance the organization’s technology and culture to help WomenVenture’s mission of empowering women entrepreneurs and make WomenVenture an employer of choice. She feels honored to be part of such an impactful and passionate organization.

Addie studied finance and management with concentrations in leadership and entrepreneurship for her undergraduate degree and went on to get her master’s degree in business with a focus on global, social, and sustainable enterprise from Colorado State University. It was during these years that Addie learned about the start-up process and wrote multiple business plans, igniting a passion for entrepreneurship.

Outside of work, Addie enjoys trying new outdoor activities: She enjoys mushroom foraging, snowboarding, reading, and cooking. She is also attempting to make her own kombucha and hopes that it doesn’t lead to all her glass bottles exploding (again).
