Co-founder & CEO

Anita Hossain Choudhry

My parents immigrated to the US from Bangladesh and found creative ways to share their life lessons through storytelling. I loved the stories so much I decided to share them by performing Bengali plays all around the country. Through these stories I gained valuable perspective and connected with a place my parents once called home.

I lead with curiosity and empathy which empowers others to find their voice. I launched a women's peer group at Deutsche Bank and a storytelling series for Wharton MBAs. Most recently, as the Head of Knowledge at First Round Capital, I helped hundreds of entrepreneurs connect deeply, candidly share their concerns, and learn from each other. My work on creating safe spaces is featured in the First Round Review. I’m also an executive coach formerly with Reboot and a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner.

The Grand is a culmination of my previous work experiences and inspired by my belief that everyone deserves group coaching and a supportive community.
