#PowerToThePerseverant — CRV Promotes Caitlin Bolnick Rellas to General Partner

By Team CRV

CRV, our Seed and Series A focused firm, has been around for 52 years. Markets ebb and flow, but one thing has always been a constant for us… We don’t just partner with early stage technology companies, we invest in people. Not only do we back entrepreneurs, we also invest in our employees. We pride ourselves on supporting, recognizing and rewarding our diverse and talented teammates. Today we’re thrilled to announce that Caitlin Bolnick Rellas has been promoted to general partner.

Prior to joining CRV, Caitlin cut her teeth as an investor at OpenView and was also part of the founding team at VentureApp (now HqO). Her experiences building a startup from scratch endear her to our founders because she knows the kind of grit and passion it takes to launch a successful startup .

Caitlin’s perseverance, determination and strong relationships are also something her colleagues at the firm appreciate in the boardroom and on the pickleball court. In fact, even before she joined CRV, she would pitch in and lend her talents as a great networker to the firm.

She is someone her teammates say is always helping other founders and has fun doing it. On Team CRV she’s known as being positive, upbeat and an extremely hard worker. While at CRV, she revamped our scout program and helped CRV secure deals with influential entrepreneurs.

Caitlin has a strong background in SaaS and is looking to invest in the next generation of great software companies. If you’re actively building an API enabled SaaS business, whether it’s horizontal or functional focused SaaS, please don’t hesitate to reach out to CRV’s newest general partner. Congrats Caitlin!
