Jeffrey Grabow

EY US Venture Capital Leader

Passionate about working with entrepreneurs and venture capitalists in Silicon Valley and beyond.

Jeff has more than 20 years of experience collaborating with venture-backed companies, grounded in his early career as an auditor working with CEOs and CFOs of fast-growth, agile companies trying to scale. He calls the San Francisco Bay area home, but his familiarity with high-potential start-ups extends far beyond the west coast.

In his role as US Venture Capital Leader at EY, Jeff helps connect venture capitalists and entrepreneurs to the valuable resources and support ecosystems they need to nimbly navigate the inevitable challenges and opportunities associated with undertaking growth. 

Many of the companies Jeff works with eventually consider initial public offerings as they grow, giving him a unique perspective on how a business goes from start-up to market leader.

Jeff has a BS in Business Administration, Marketing and Finance from California State University - Stanislaus.

How Jeff is building a better working world

“A healthy venture ecosystem is a foundational element to a thriving economy. When entrepreneurs are responsibility connected to the venture capital resources they need to bring new products and services to market faster and with more inclusive distribution, we all reap the benefits of a working world that operates better. By helping connect financiers and creators, I aim to do my part in making that better working world a reality.”
