Mary Grove is a Partner at Rise of the Rest Seed Fund where she is focused on investments as well as managing the engagement platform to support the Rise of the Rest portfolio. She is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Prior to joining Revolution, Mary spent 14 years at Google in Silicon Valley, NYC, and Zurich. She was the founding Director of Google for Entrepreneurs and led the company’s global efforts to support entrepreneurs and communities in over 100 countries. She also led New Business Development partnerships and worked on the company’s IPO deal team. Mary is the co-founder of Silicon North Stars, a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire young Minnesotans from economically underserved communities toward futures in tech. Mary has served on the boards and advisory boards of the Techstars Foundation, Astia, UP Global, and the Stanford Alumni Association. She earned her BA and MA from Stanford University.

I believe that entrepreneurs have transformative power to build products and companies that change their communities, cities, and ultimately the world. The entrepreneurial spirit is thriving not just in Silicon Valley but in cities across the globe.
