About | Amy Wu

Amy came to Menlo Ventures to grow the firm’s consumer technology and gaming practice and back founders building new products at the forefront of emerging platform shifts.

As an investor, Amy seeks founders who share her obsession with products that define how people work, live, and play. She believes that emerging technologies like AI, blockchain, and AR give founders new surface areas to create magical consumer experiences. Not afraid to get her
hands dirty, Amy loves using new bleeding-edge products and actively participates in user communities.

Before joining Menlo, Amy focused on Web3 and gaming at FTX Ventures, where she invested in Sui, Soba Studios, TripleDot Studios, Yuga Labs, and Doodles. Prior to that, she led investments in consumer, gaming, and blockchain at Lightspeed Venture Partners, where her investments included Epic Games, Faraway Games, Weee!, Webull, Arbitrum, and Alchemy. As an operator, she was SVP and CFO of the Global Digital and Sports portfolio for Discovery, Inc., a $2+ billion business that includes Eurosport, the PGA, the Olympics, US Motor Trend, and Scripps Lifestyle Studios. Before Discovery, she ran finance and operations at Welcome, an NYC-based marketing software company that Optimizely later acquired. Amy began her career at Insight Venture Partners, working with companies like JD.com, Zumba, and Tumblr. She holds a B.A. in biochemistry from Harvard.

Outside of work, Amy skis and climbs mountains. She is based in New York City and frequently in SF and LA. You can find her on Twitter at @amytongwu, where she shares thoughts about gaming, consumer technology, and blockchain.
