Biography:

Jill Krishnamurthy is the CEO of DUO Venues, the leading event venue business with over 150 properties and 250 employees across the country. DUO operates a sharing-economy venue marketplace that makes unique properties accessible for exclusive events, managed by DUO’s event staff.

Before DUO, Jill was the CFO of Comforts of Home, a European student housing business operating across France, Italy and Spain. Prior to that, she was a Partner at Dolphin Capital, a middle-market private equity fund, for nearly ten years where she managed the fund’s investments and assumed executive roles across a number of portfolio companies. While at Dolphin, she led the acquisition of Manduka, the leading premium yoga product and apparel brand in the market. She joined the Manduka team for three years as CFO & COO until completing a successful exit for Dolphin.

Along the way, Jill backpacked through India and met her husband. Their life is, as they say, “naan standard”, as they get to blend their love of American and Indian cultures together.
