Karolina Mrozkova

Vice President

I was born and raised in Prague before moving to New York in my early 20s. I love going back frequently to see my whole family.

My path has been quite unorthodox. I began my professional life at 18, building a successful career as a fashion model. While modelling, I completed a dual degree at NYU Stern, which propelled me into business and finance.

Before joining White Star in 2018, I spent time working with early-stage businesses at a New-York-based start-up incubator.

I spend a big portion of my time at White Star in the consumer space, looking at companies across different verticals including digital health, fintech and foodtech. Needless to say, meeting people across the tech space from founders to co-investors is a galvanizing and inspiring work.

I still love horse riding, which I grew up doing and competing in. More recently I have turned my love of snowboarding into trying split boarding in the winter and surfing in the summer.

Favorite two books I read in the last year are Just Kids by Patti Smith and In Praise of Love by Alain Badiou. I always find it hard to pick a favorite movie, but Forrest Gump is very high up there!
