Kristen Marumoto; Marketing & Operations Manager at Spark Angels
Kristen, born and raised in Whitby, celebrates Durham’s start-up ecosystem and loves to assist entrepreneurs in finding the right resources for them. Her primary task at Spark Angels is to analyze high potential start-ups that are ‘investment-ready’ and bring them forward to Durham and Northumberland’s angel investors. She liaises the initial founder-investor relations as founders navigate the angel investing landscape. Prior to Spark Angels, Kristen was involved with a wearable tech start-up in Toronto where she would manage the day to day operations of the company – she understands what it means to wear as many hats as you can handle in order to get the job done.
