Octopus Ventures: Patricia Camarero

Patricia Camarero

Patricia joined the Octopus Ventures Consumer team in 2022, with a particular interest in the way innovative consumer businesses stand to leverage Web3 to build their relationships with customers.

With an academic background in industrial engineering, Patricia has always been committed to solving problems with the consumer in mind. Before moving into VC, she spent nearly half a decade at Amazon, managing one of the tech giant’s retail categories, developing growth and profitable strategy for the Home Entertainment division and supporting the Alexa team as they launched Amazon’s voice assistant in Italy and Spain. In her final year there, she joined AWS, supporting the team’s sales strategy and operations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

She arrived at Octopus Ventures fresh off the back of her MBA at MIT Sloan, where she gained VC experience with Conexo Ventures in Madrid, Taget Global in Berlin and IRIS ventures, a direct-to-consumer fund based in Barcelona.

Over the years, Patricia has lived in Montreal, Chicago and Boston – and the common denominator of icy winters is no coincidence. Outside the office, she’s happiest on the slopes. In the summer, she tries to get to as many music festivals as her schedule permits, and, whatever the time of year, whenever she’s back home in her native Madrid she makes sure to get acquainted with any updates to the city’s bustling restaurant scene.
