I'm Karine. I'm a Partner at Slope, a creative agency + venture fund I started with my partner Jeffrey in 2019. We help startups with brand + design, and also actively invest in startups, particularly in commerce tech, consumer, and fintech.

📍 Los Angeles, CA ☀️




I’m a founder, marketer, and startup builder - living playfully + authentically as my unique self. ✨

Through Slope, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to partner + build beloved brands for 200+ companies. I currently lead our VC investments and BD + partnership efforts, and lead the digital marketing + TikTok side of the agency. Select clients:

In early 2023, I started building Assembly, tools helping marketing teams scale organic content, a product I’ve always wished I had as a marketer. 150+ startups and agencies like Modern Animal, Mercury, Beehiiv, and Astranis use Assembly to scale marketing through content.


I’m love supporting founders, and am particularly interested in the future of health/wellness, creativity, commerce, and VR/AR. Founders usually come to me to think through all things marketing, GTM, growth + marketing, and brand. I believe deeply in founders that work on companies that align with their values and can proudly call their life’s work.


Writing + Fun

I occasionally write personal thoughts about brands, tech, investing, and more here
