Arianne Ortegaray

Los Angeles, California, USA

Both of my parents started their own businesses so I guess you can say I’ve been surrounded by entrepreneurs my entire life. I’m drawn to the passion that people have when risking it all to start a new endeavor. This interest has led me to work with startups from all over the world. Being the analytical person that I am, I love dissecting a company’s business strategy and figuring out their major needs. My diverse experiences with startups have allowed me to develop a unique set of best practices when designing programs for the growth of these enterprises. I'm always open to collaborating with exciting new ventures, so feel free to contact me at

When I'm not working...

I love live music. A concert is always a great reason to gather friends for a fun experience. Being in the presence of all that raw energy– nothing else compares.

I love adventures. From kayaking through sea caves in Vietnam to trekking the mountains of Peru to reach Machu Picchu, I'll try anything at least once.

I love cooking. Learning to cook new dishes is a fantastic stress reliever. It's great to throw on some music and experiment with different tastes and textures.
