Lynne Laube, Founder and Former CEO of Cardlytics, Joins Valor Ventures as Operating Partner

Lynne Laube, the founder and former CEO of Cardlytics, joins Valor Ventures as operating partner and investor in Valor Fund 3. On her path to IPO, Lynne raised over $1B from public and private markets, including notable VCs Canaan Partners, Polaris Ventures and local firm TTV. Only a handful of women founders have scaled their companies to public markets?Lynne is one of these rare talents.

Valor is a growing venture capital firm launching its third fund to lead first rounds in B2B SaaS businesses. Lynne's work as operating partner will focus on advising and mentoring founders in the portfolio, serving on portfolio company boards, leading Valor's venture partner network, and attracting top new founder talent.

"I know capital matters, and so does finding partners who have the experience and connections to help you take it to the next level. Valor has proven its ability to find exceptional underrepresented founders?founders like me," says Lynne. "I'm excited about this next chapter, paying it forward with top founders from all backgrounds, right in my backyard."

Lynne met Valor when managing partner Lisa Calhoun came to her for advice on what was missing in the local venture ecosystem before launching Valor's first fund in 2016. That year, Lynne participated in the inaugural Startup Runway, one of the first startup events in the region focused on underrepresented founders. When Valor held its first annual meeting, Lynne hosted the event in Cardlytics' headquarters in Ponce City Market. When Valor's Fund 2 launched in 2019, Lynne was among the limited partners.

"I've known and admired Lynne for close to a decade," says Lisa. "She is a lighthouse out-performing, visionary B2B founder. She catalyzes our capacity to serve more founders, broaden the path to big outcomes in our portfolio, and scale a first-class, founder-forward venture capital firm in Atlanta."
