Founding Partner

Rebekah Wu founded Right-Hand Partners based on her own experiences as an entrepreneur seeking start-up capital. During those years, she attended and presented at venture conferences, built out a team, developed the products, and hired consultants and professional service providers. Even after spending thousands of dollars and hours, she was often unsatisfied with the results for her money and time. She found very few providers that produced deliverables that proved they could see through the eyes of the entrepreneur.

Therefore, Rebekah decided to be THE "solution" for entrepreneurs... someone that could be counted upon as a "right-hand partner": to often make the first move on behalf of her clients, to facilitate critical introductions, and to catalyze business transactions that will catapult them to the next level. Right-Hand Partners has done just that, working selectively with cutting-edge startup companies and leading venture capital and angel groups throughout the SF Bay Area.

Since founding RHP in 2001, Rebekah has coached 48 companies raise over $200M of venture capital. 24 of those companies have been acquired totaling ~$1B. She has produced over 150 events bringing together active VCs and quality entrepreneurs.

Rebekah was not only an experienced Founder and CEO of a software startup, but she was previously the E-Commerce Strategy Mgr. at a Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, and a Regional Mgr. of Internet Solutions at AT&T.

Rebekah’s passion is singing sacred medievel and early music and is currently a soprano in the Cathedral Schola and Chalice Consort.
