Obvious Ventures adds Tina Hoang-To as partner

The former Wedding Spot CEO and founder joins Obvious Ventures in SF to lead its growth-stage practice.

San Francisco-based Obvious Ventures, which earlier this year raised about $272 million for its third fund, has named Tina Hoang-To a partner. She will lead the firm’s emerging growth practice.

Hoang-To previously founded and served as CEO of Wedding Spot, a venture-backed marketplace that provides price quotes for wedding venues. The company was bought last year by Cvent.

Prior to joining Obvious Ventures, Hoang-To focused on consumer internet investing at growth-stage investor TCV, which she joined in February 2019. At TCV, she served as executive vice president and was involved in such deals as Splunk, Merkle and Modsy. It was her second stint at TCV, having served as an associate beginning in 2008.

In addition, earlier this year, Venture Capital Journal named Hoang-To as one of its 40 Rising Stars under 40 in the global venture community.
