I am so excited to announce that Jill Ford will be joining Toyota AI Ventures as a Principal on our investment team. Jill will be discovering promising new startups and supporting the growth of our portfolio companies. She brings a wealth of experience working with entrepreneurs to unlock their talents, and we’re fortunate to have her on our team.

Most recently, Jill served as the Head of Innovation and Entrepreneurship for the City of Detroit where she worked with public and private sector partners to create programs, such as the Motor City Match, to fill gaps in the city’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Prior to joining the Detroit’s Mayor’s office, she invested in several startups and held global business development roles at Disney, Motorola, HP and Microsoft. Jill received her computer science degree from Harvard and MBA from Wharton.

Beyond her business and technology expertise, Jill has a strong commitment to helping others. In particular, she is passionate about improving people’s lives through technology and we’re thrilled to have her on the Toyota AI Ventures team to help attract and fuel disruptive new startups. Be sure to follow her on Twitter.

Welcome to the team, Jill!
