Leidina Dervishi

Zero-to-one Operations Leader

I'm an operator, builder, and former venture investor. Some of my proudest achievements are: orchestrating the successful exit of Fluidity within 3 years of its launch, managing the fundraising and close of the third venture vehicle at CoinFund for $84M, and being elevated to an investment role during my time at CoinFund to obtain an average investment performance of 400%. I love working alongside founders on all things operations, finance, and strategy and am excited to roll my sleeves up. With me on your team, your operations will be a smoothly running machine and you'll be able to focus on the stuff that matters :)
