Meet Estelle Spanneut

Estelle joined Volition Capital in 2021 as an Analyst on the Software and Tech-Enabled-Services Deal Team. She is responsible for sourcing and providing due diligence on new investment opportunities within software and tech-enabled service businesses.



  • Estelle graduated from Georgetown University in 2021. She majored in Operations & Information Management with a minor in Economics. She was also a Global Business Fellow, a joint program between the school of business and school of foreign service.
  • Throughout college, she interned for various startups, startup support organizations, and DC-based venture capital firm Revolution.
  • At Georgetown, she led Georgetown’s entrepreneurship club and startup accelerator (Georgetown Ventures), and was an outdoor guide, leading other students on outdoor trips on the weekends.



  • Estelle is originally from France, and grew up in Seoul, South Korea and Boise, Idaho. She finally became an American citizen in 2018.
  • Her favorite movie is Cars, and she largely credits it to how she learned English when she was younger.
  • Despite not being from the US, Estelle has visited over 30 states, with the goal of visiting all 50.
  • She loves hiking and being outdoors, and is certified as a Wilderness First Responder.


The opportunity to interact with entrepreneurs who have a strong drive to grow their business and a forward-thinking attitude about the market is what excites me about investing with Volition. Being part of a team so dedicated to working alongside passionate entrepreneurs is what makes this experience so interesting and rewarding.
