Sarah Holmes

Talent Analyst

I’m a strong believer in two ideas: everyone has a personal narrative and there are many paths to success. My work allows me to combine my love for hearing people’s stories with my passion for connecting with individuals and helping them chart their own course — and as an extrovert, I couldn’t be happier.

As a Talent Analyst, I help build, maintain and grow First Round’s talent pool, working with candidates and founders to help them find the right opportunities and perfect matches. I’m constantly inspired by the First Round community, where there isn’t just one expert, but rather a collective voice of ideas, inspiration and support.

Prior to First Round, I sat on both the sales and talent teams at Vettery, an online talent marketplace based in New York City. I graduated from the University of Vermont after majoring in history. Outside of the office, you can find me hunting down the perfect club sandwich, catching up on the news, watching Jeopardy and convincing my friends to go on long walks around New York City.
