April Underwood

Founding Partner ANGELS, Board Member, and Executive in The Bay Area

I am a product leader, angel investor, company advisor, and board member based in the Bay Area.

I'm passionate about the intersection of technology and communities - at work and at home. I led product at Slack from 2015-2019. I previously wore a variety of hats across product, partnerships, and monetization at Twitter from 2010-2015.

Before my decade in hypergrowth, I held roles at Google, Travelocity, Apple, and Intel.

In 2015, I co-founded #ANGELS, and we've collectively invested in over 150 companies.

I am a member of the boards of Zillow Group and Eventbrite, and I'm an active alumna of the University of Texas at Austin (BBA, 2001) and University of California, Berkeley (MBA, 2007).

I hail from Texas, and grew up in Amarillo and Arlington. I'm a proud Texas Longhorn fan and my family and I spend time there - but I'll admit I prefer the temperate weather and hiking in the Bay Area. I am a stepmom to a 20-something techie and mom to a pre-K LEGO builder.
