Taub’s roots are in South Central Los Angeles to Mexican parents who immigrated to the United States with no money and no family to go to for support. Her father found jobs as a migrant farmworker, in a door manufacturing factory, and as a truck driver. Her mother babysat and cleaned houses. “We grew up poor,” Taub says. “People used to tell me that I’d be a high school dropout and go on welfare.” At age 34, she had a bachelor’s degree, an MBA, and 13 years of experience working in the tech industry—including high-profile positions at venture funds built on investing in women, people of color, and the LBGTQ+ community.
