hello, i’m victoria young

i’m a lover of slow mornings, heart-to-heart conversations, and carefully architected floral tablescapes

Fascinated by intersection of culture, art, and technology, I studied mass media and economics at UCLA before starting my career at Disney Interactive Studios. Since then, I’ve pursued my passion for understanding how to create shifts in culture by working on ground-breaking ideas, brands, and technology innovations. I’ve worked with iconic brands like Rolex, Warner Bros, and Sony, as well as for nonprofits including Invisible Children, Freedom and Fashion, and The Awesome Foundation. After receiving my MBA in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at MIT Sloan, I led initiatives at Google, Uber, Facebook, and Netflix.

As a Kleiner Perkins Product Fellow, I joined Uber to work on the rebrand of UberSelect and the launch of uberPOOL. I led the marketing strategy, first national Capital One partnership campaign, and laid the groundwork for messaging automation.

I was recruited to lead the launch of Facebook Live, which was one of Facebook’s largest multi-million dollar campaigns both out in the real world with takeovers at Times Square during New Year’s Eve and in the Facebook app, with ads and promotional units within News Feed. During my time at Facebook, I was also part of the inaugural launch of Facebook Startup Garage, mentoring startups in Paris that were part of the Station F program.

At Netflix, I led Launch Strategy for Unscripted and Scripted, Co-Licensed TV verticals, driving the charter of Product Innovation based on the ever-evolving content landscape. I worked on the launch of Patriot Act by Hasan Minhaj, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, and more.

Now, I’m advising startups on product strategy, writing, and building something new. If you’re interested in working together, please reach out. I love meeting kindred souls!
