About Dilly

What are your interests and passions outside of BCV?

I try to spend as much time in the ocean as possible, through diving and surfing. Recently, I’ve been on a quest to bake the perfect croissant (lamination is no joke). I love exploring with my dog, Rigby, on hikes or at dog parks.


What advice would you give your younger self?

It’s all about the people in your life!

What is a self-care ritual you practice?

Immersing myself in the natural world puts everything in perspective.


What is compelling about your domain?

Fintech and climate tech impact every level of economies, worldwide. From reducing energy costs to decarbonizing supply chains, every hairy problem we face is an opportunity for a massive business. It’s an exciting time: responding to climate change is increasingly driving business and consumer decisions, creating new sectors and incentivizing businesses to reinvent themselves.

What do you look for when you partner with a founder?

The desire and humility to be better every day.


What inspires you?

When expertise in a domain deepens, and science becomes art.
