Lenore Karafa | Maximizing Opportunities for Advancement

Partner, First In

Thought Leader


Join us in the BreakLine Arena for a conversation with Lenore Karafa, Partner at First In – an early-stage investment firm focused on empowering entrepreneurs on a mission. First In invests in companies at the forefront of modern security for enterprises and for society, including cybersecurity software and defense technology companies.

Lenore brings us along on her journey, from the Naval Academy to a prestigious career on Wall Street to surrounding herself with teams that exemplify her values. She details the growth mindset that helps her reframe challenging situations into opportunities, her experience being the only woman in the room, and the importance of building a supportive and strong professional network.

“My failures prepared me for the challenges that were to come. I went from being brittle to being resilient, setting me up well for the rest of my career.”
