Board Member, Co-Chair of Screening & Due Diligence
"I value the collective wisdom that results from E8 members and Fellows collaborating on deal review, and the exceptional questions that result."
Molly Shor has been an invaluable force in E8's deal screening and due diligence process, and now Chairs that committee in addition to helping lead and guide the work of our other Fellows.
Herself an impact investor, Molly seeks to improve the health of the earth's ecosystems.
Molly spent her childhood helping her father - a falconer - train and track birds of prey. When the peregrine falcon was brought back from the brink of extinction through the combined efforts of the international endangered species act, a ban on DDT, and breeding programs it was a powerful lesson on the negative impacts of mankind on the natural environment but also on the ability of collective action to change that.
Molly has a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Mathematics from Harvard, a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, and an MBA focused on clean technology from Oregon State University. She has also served on Oregon State University's engineering faculty.
