ABOUT US

Amy Nelson

I am the founder and CEO of The Riveter, work and community spaces built by women for all. I left my career as a corporate litigator in 2017 while pregnant with my third daughter in three years. After I graduated from Emory University and NYU School of Law, I practiced corporate litigation for over a decade in New York City and Seattle. I also served on President Obama's National Finance Committee and previously worked with President Carter's The Carter Center. In 2017, I launched The Riveter while pregnant with my third daughter in three years. The startup's growth has outpaced even WeWork's first years, and we recently closed a $5 million Series Seed led by Madrona Venture Group. The Riveter is redefining the future of work by including women in the vision. I’ve spoken across the world on many stages, including Cannes Lions and the United State of Women. I was featured on Bloomberg Technology with Emily Chang and published in The Washington Post. The Riveter has been featured in Fast Company, Forbes, Bloomberg Technology, and more.
