Uncork Capital is a seed-stage venture firm that commits early, helps with the hard stuff, and sticks around.Considered one of the most active established seed funds in Silicon Valley, it has invested in companies such as Postmates, ClassDojo, Eventbrite, Fitbit, and SendGrid.


Uncork Capital engaged Maven to find an exceptional Executive Assistant to support the Founding Partner and two General Partners.


Maven sent a curated panel of our top 5 EA candidates and LJ Cohen, who was part of the initial panel, was hired a month later. The team at Uncork was wowed by LJ after her first interview, and the process moved quickly after that. Once Maven won the EA to Founder search, we were tasked to find an additional EA / Office Manager to support their growing team. Owing to their confidence in our service and partnership, Uncork has introduced Maven to many of its portfolio companies over the years and LJ Cohen has even been a featured guest on Maven’s Executive Assistant podcast, REACH.
