Introducing Kelsey

  • Posted by: admin

This August, we brought on Kelsey Lutz to the Dashfire team.  We have hired over a hundred people through our sister company, FarShore, but Kelsey is our first venture partner at Dashfire, and we are thrilled to have her.  Kelsey graduated from Kellogg in June and focused her 2 years in Evanston in entrepreneurship as a VC for OCA Ventures and as the head of Business Development for Chimu Solutions.  She previously spent 4 years in finance including 3 years at Goldman Sachs.

In just two months, Kelsey has met with over 100 entrepreneurs and advised on everything from business model durability to social media content dispersion strategies.   As part of our effort to support effective entrepreneurship within the community  she has already led a presentation to Kellogg’s E-Club and mentored  entrepreneurs at Chicago Startup Weekend, Professor Carter Cast’s Entrepreneurship and New Venture Formation class, and Northwestern’s Startup Incinerator weekend.  Most importantly, she is working closely with our newest portfolio companies to shape strategy and ensure effective go-to-market strategies.  Feel free to reach out to her at or @kelseyutz3.
