AirTree Ventures

Jess Heffernan

Operations & Community Manager

I started my career in events after gaining a BA in Business at Southern Cross University. Since then I have spent the past 10 years in project management, corporate communications and marketing/PR as well as serving as a business consultant for a number of startup organisations.

I’ve worked for AirTree since the very early days when we were working from home and meeting in cafes and feel incredibly fortunate to have been part of its evolution into the company it is today. This is my first job in a venture capital environment and I've loved every minute. I look after our AirTree community - in both our portfolio and the wider ecosystem - and oversee operations for AirTree. Not surprisingly no two days are the same.

I relish the pace, energy and spirit of our team and am honoured to be a part of it. I love meeting and working with founders, hearing their stories and their passion for their business.
