Catharine Dockery is the founder of Vice Ventures. She has a long-held passion for vice investing, on both a personal and professional basis. While interviewing with traditional consumer venture firms, she continually brushed against vice clauses in her investment pitches, with that frustration culminating in the idea for Vice Ventures.
Prior to launching the fund, Catharine was an early member of the digitally native vertical brands M&A team at Walmart eCommerce. She took this position after managing a prominent founder’s personal venture investments and acting as his personal Chief of Staff. Before this, Catharine was an Analyst on a high yield trading desk. Catharine was the president of her class at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where she studied a self-guided hybrid of neuroscience and finance.
