Nathalie Molina Niño
Nathalie Molina Niño is the CEO and founder of BRAVA Investments, which targets high-growth, scalable businesses that can make a catalytic economic impact on women. A technologist and coder by training, she’s a consummate entrepreneur, and a storyteller at heart, passionate about gender parity.
Prior to launching BRAVA, as interim CEO of SELF MADE, Nathalie led the launch of SELF MADE, the company, mobile app, learning platform and NY Times Best Selling book by Telemundo's former Entertainment president, Nely Galan. In 2015, Nathalie stepped in as interim Chief Revenue Officer of PowerToFly, a startup aimed at closing the gender gap in tech. In 2012, while on sabbatical at Columbia University, Molina Niño co-founded Entrepreneurs@Athena at the Athena Center for Leadership studies of Barnard College, with the mission of leveling the playing field for women entrepreneurs. Nathalie launched her first tech startup at the age of 20.
Molina Niño has advised industry leaders in both the for- and non-profit sector ranging from multinationals (Disney, Microsoft, MTV, The Discovery Channel, Mattel), early stage startups (Cranium, Onvia) and non-profits (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, World Affairs Council, Seattle International Film Festival, Athena). She writes and is quoted widely in the media, from best selling books like Tim Ferriss’ 4-Hour Workweek to diverse media outlets ranging from Bitch Magazine to Forbes, Time Inc and CNN Money.
Keith Ferrazzi called her a “super-connector” in his updated best-selling classic, Never Eat Alone. Nathalie is the “fuel core of a network that makes it easy for her to tap the resources to get stuff done, and done quickly.”
