She is the founder and CEO of Molly Wood Media, an angel investing and startup advisory firm where she focuses on tech solutions to the climate crisis. Prior to this, she held the position of managing director at LAUNCH, an early-stage venture capital firm.

Having studied journalism at the University of Montana, Wood began her career at the Associated Press before moving into technology journalism. She rose to prominence while working at CNET from 2000 to 2013, where she co-hosted the "Buzz Out Loud" podcast, among other shows.

In 2014, Wood joined The New York Times as a deputy technology editor. Later, she became a tech correspondent and backup host for the US public radio program "Marketplace."
