Danielle Ullner, Director at BCG Digital Ventures, on being an operational ‘ninja’

Danielle Blumberg Ullner holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and has more than 20 years of experience in management consulting and venture capital. Before joining BCG Digital Ventures, Danielle worked as an operating partner in Pico Partners in Israel. “An operating partner is either a subject matter expert in a narrow field, or an overall ninja, who helps to identify gaps in existing structures and has a go at solving them with resources available to them. In my case, I was called the ninja.” Her everyday included mapping out the gaps in functional areas for Pico’s portfolio companies and solving problems wherever she deemed necessary.
