“In my work I am surrounded with incredibly creative people building companies and teams,” she said. “These people tend to be unusually ambitious because it is hard to create something truly great without putting in the work – (I’m) helping smart people accomplish their dreams, including solving some of the biggest problems in the world (eg. climate change, cybersecurity, etc.).”
Malika also seeks out women in everything she does, from hiring and investing to co-investing, fundraising and collaborating.
