The rest of the 100 (in alphabetical order): Dina Routhier, Stanley Ventures
Dina Routhier is an investment manager at Stanley Ventures, the investment arm of US-based tool manufacturer Stanley Black & Decker. She is responsible for identifying startups with disruptive technological innovations in which the unit “can make a minority financing investment and concurrently enter into a mutually beneficial commercial partnership”.
Larry Harper, vice-president and head of Stanley Ventures, said in his nomination of Routhier: “Dina came to Stanley Black & Decker experienced in both venture and M&A. Her strong background has given her the ability to understand Stanley Black & Decker’s strategic venture vision and strategy. This has allowed her to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact.”
Before joining Stanley Ventures in 2017, Routhier worked at US-based design software provider Autodesk’s corporate development and corporate venture capital unit on M&A transactions and strategic investments. She also has 12 years of experience at US-based VC firm Mass Ventures.
Harper added: “In her first year, Dina will complete more than six investments and strategic relationships that are all meaningful to Stanley Black & Decker. Dina’s ability to dive deep into any technology gives her great insight into our deals. Her enthusiasm for her job and understanding of how she impacts Stanley make her a fantastic asset to the Stanley Ventures team.”
Routhier said corporate venturing had provided “the perfect opportunity to merge the early-stage equity investing skills honed at Mass Ventures with the large corporate skills honed at Autodesk”.
