Deena Shakir: Driven By a Burning Problem

With Deena Shakir, Partner, Lux Capital

Deena Shakir is living proof that a “non-linear” extraordinary career. Deena is a Partner at Lux Capital, a top venture capital firm. There, she’s received a lot of recognition for her work and her emphasis on diversity. She also sits on several boards, and contributes to Forbes — that is, when she’s not being featured. But she actually started very near us in Mountain View, where her parents immigrated from Iraq. Her career has taken her pretty much everywhere, even through the White House.
