Guergana Tomova joined Unusual Ventures in late 2018 as part-time CFO. Prior to Unusual, she was CFO and Partner at Felicis Ventures for five years. There, she played a key strategic role in building the entire back office function from scratch, among other things. She oversaw all financial, reporting, administrative and compliance tasks and was involved in other operational and fundraising aspects of the firm. During that time, she also built great relationships with various key service providers (audit and tax teams, external counsels, bankers, brokers, etc.).
Previously, she served as Director of Finance at Venrock, the premier venture capital firm originally established as the venture capital arm of the Rockefeller family, where she was responsible for day-to-day management, audit, tax and LP reporting. She also held various finance and accounting roles at Mayfield Fund, SVB Capital and Summit Partners. Her entrepreneurial spirit and drive for efficiencies led her to form and successfully manage her own consulting business earlier in her career, and for nearly four years she provided accounting and software services to a number of venture capital and private equity groups in the Bay Area.
Guergana is a Certified Public Accountant. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the California State Society of Public Accountants (CalCPA).
