Julia Govberg

Senior Community Manager

As First Round’s Senior Community Manager, I bring together the bright minds of our community to share their knowledge and learn from each other. I facilitate meaningful conversations to help benefit the founders and operators of First Round’s ecosystem, whether it’s a discussion about your favorite new podcast or tips for boosting the confidence of a disengaged employee. Whether I am helping to promote the online community through a virtual event or the offline community through the mentorship program, I love getting the opportunity to meet amazing individuals and help them succeed in their roles (both current and future).

Prior to joining First Round full-time, I had the chance to work on building the online community in a part-time capacity for two years. I also worked in Revenue Strategy at StubHub, and helped to think through how they could support fans with incredible experiences.

I graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with a concentration in Accounting. I loved learning about the foundations of businesses, while also making meaningful contributions to the greater Philadelphia community. During my time at Penn, I mentored local high schoolers on how to be positive change-makers in their schools and neighborhoods.

Outside of work, you can find me exploring cities with friends and trying new restaurants. I am a huge creature of habit, so you can also find me cooking bolognese and broccoli on a weekly basis.
