Lindy Fishburne is the Executive Director of Breakout Labs and serves as the Senior Vice President for Investments at the Thiel Foundation based in San Francisco. She leads the organization’s strategic development and program design. She joined the foundation in 2007 after a career in management consulting, advising Fortune 500 companies on profitable growth strategies. She also brings years of experience in non-profit development and feasibility planning. Lindy has a deep understanding of what it takes to make it through the early days in business, having managed two start-up companies through rapid growth and eventual sale. She hopes that Breakout Labs’ novel revolving fund model will accelerate innovation and redefine how early stage start ups are funded. She has an AB from Duke University and MBA from University of Texas at Austin.
