Meet Diana

Diana is a Venture Partner within Eclipse’s Venture Equity team where she is focused on technologies in mobility, infrastructure, and smart cities and has over a decade of experience in developing go-to-market plans, business strategies, and partnerships for heavily regulated industries.  She is passionate about tackling hard, complex problems whose solutions change the way we live, work, and move around.

She most recently held various leadership roles at Virgin Hyperloop, where she led go-to-market initiatives to deploy innovative transportation projects around the world through public-private partnerships. Diana also worked on various industry-wide initiatives to pioneer the adoption of a new mode of transportation, including developing a pathway to regulatory approval and access to billions of dollars in federal funding and financing programs.

Diana has been featured as a keynote and speaker at numerous conferences, including South by Southwest, Future Travel Experience, and Hypermotion, and is a member of the Edison Awards Steering Committee. Diana started her career as a management consultant at Oliver Wyman in New York, where she focused on the financial services industry.

Diana holds an MBA from Wharton and an MPA of International Development from the Harvard Kennedy School, where she received a grant from the Harvard Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation for her research on the development of the electric vehicle industry in China. She received her BA in Economics and International Studies from the University of Chicago. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, great food, and curling up with a good book.

Diana’s deep insights on infrastructure development challenges and perspectives on business strategy were instrumental in accelerating the development of my thesis to a funded startup in under four months.
