Kristina is the sort of investor every founder needs, especially in the beginning. It is a rare combination of traits simultaneously expressed in a single person. She has all the knowledge, experience, and understanding of grit, resilience and the hustle of the startup. She also is someone you can confide in and ask every question you really want to ask going through your head while being relaxed and knowing it’s safe. To her, no problem is too silly and she will come up with clear and friendly action points to address any issue. She is inspiring, her energy is captivating and contagious and it is impossible not to be drawn in by her passion to just be the best investor your company needs.”
Overwater provides disproportionately more value than their check size, especially when it comes to marketing strategy. Kristina is proactive and is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve the quality of what we put out in the world and who we bring into the organization. She genuinely wants to help mission-driven companies and has valuable feedback no matter our question. She's very well-connected and has seen it all, from CPG and retail to food tech and experience working at top VC firms. She brings that experience into our conversations and has an ability to see around corners."

Kristina is incredible. She not only provides razor-sharp insights about business strategy, but is also deeply empathetic and understands the many challenges that early-stage startup founders face. She's able to help me confront difficult, sometimes uncomfortable realities, while simultaneously helping me to feel energized, prepared, and confident in tackling them. That is exactly what every early-stage startup founder could benefit from."
CEO of Matter of Fact
As an entrepreneur with a few unicorns under my belt, I can confidently say that Kristina is a great asset to our board. Kristina is extremely helpful at three levels: she has a great eye for talent, she knows how to effectively help in funding rounds, and she has a great sense for the consumer experience."
