Ryan Burns

Office Concierge

As First Round’s Office Concierge, I manage all facets of our San Francisco office and the events we hold on site. My role enables me to provide a friendly and reliable face for all who come through our doors here on the West Coast. It’s extremely rewarding to have a position centered around helping others and I’m lucky to be able to live that out every day.

From a young age I was taught the importance of being gracious, approachable and friendly. These core values led me to a career in the hospitality industry, where I had the opportunity to manage some of the finest hotels and resorts in the world. But the biggest accomplishments that come to mind are the relationships I’ve made and the friendships I still keep. I never thought I would leave the hotel industry and I couldn’t have pictured myself working in venture capital, but First Round is extremely special place. It’s not only a community, but a thriving network of people changing the world—once I met the team, I knew I had to be a part of it.

On my days off you can find me watching sports, trying out new restaurants, relaxing outdoors and exploring all that San Francisco has to offer.
