Natalie Ledbetter

Head of People and Platform

Natalie has 17 years of work experience ranging from building and scaling orgs in three hyper-growth tech startups (B2C and B2B) to building and owning people operations end-to-end (HR, Talent Acquisition, Employee Experience/Culture, L&D, Facilities) in Fintech, Martech, 3D Printing and I-Banking. Beginning her career in sales and event production, Natalie’s super power is straddling the line between being an operator with a bias for execution, and a strategist.

After spending her entire childhood and adolescence growing up with over 90 nationalities in Southeast Asia, Natalie went on to work in a number of companies that have international populations or presences. These experiences drew her to People Operations and have allowed her to understand the complexities and nuances of building businesses in multicultural environments, while paying keen attention to things like Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and company culture. 

Natalie is joining Boldstart as Head of People & Platform to aid in portfolio growth and development, marketing and community building and investing operations. Natalie has a Bachelors of Journalism from The University of Texas at Austin.
