BOSTON, Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glasswing Ventures, an early-stage venture capital firm investing in the next generation of intelligent enterprise and frontier tech startups, today announced the addition of Carol Meyers as a Venture Partner to the Glasswing investment team. Renown for executing four successful IPOs, growing enterprise technology companies from early-stage to hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, and billions of dollars in valuation, Meyers has helped assess and integrate dozens of acquisitions and deliver consistent double-digit growth.

“Glasswing’s phenomenal work in early-stage frontier technology investment and advancing the intelligent enterprise is what attracted me to this opportunity,” said Meyers. “This is a pivotal time where creative automation, AI, Cloud, and SaaS solutions are providing answers to today’s most complex enterprise problems. I know firsthand the challenges early-stage startups face and I am delighted to be working with Rudina and the entire Glasswing team to further build on the firm’s success and leadership position in the intelligent enterprise and security markets.”

Prior to Rapid 7, Meyers served as Chief Marketing Officer at LogMeIn and Unica, where she played a pivotal role in growing the company's revenue to over $100M and establishing the new category of marketing automation software, leading to the company’s IPO and subsequent acquisition by IBM.

In addition, she was VP of Sales for Shiva Corporation and held management positions at Lotus Development and GE.
