Costina Bacuta

Senior Fund Accountant

I may be biased, but behind every successful company is a skilled accounting team. The best part about my work at First Round is that the finance team brings some personality with its precision. The work environment isn’t of same corporate mold you’ll find at other companies — and we accomplish so much more because of it. I’m smiling when problem solving with Excel at my fingertips. The time my grin was wider was when I attended my first CEO Summit and LP meeting. It was so gratifying to see the hard work of our entire team come together.

Prior to First Round, I was a Financial Reporting Accountant for Brandywine Realty Trust, where I was responsible for the annual, quarterly and monthly public REIT reporting packages. Before that, I was an Audit Associate at KPMG, working with clients in the pharmaceutical, software, entertainment, and financial services industries. I hold a B.S. in Accounting and Finance from the University of Delaware and am a Certified Public Accountant.

Even a decade plus out East hasn’t dulled my taste for my native Texas. My enthusiasm for college football, country music and authentic barbecue holds strong!
