Shimin Ooi



Shimin focuses on venture and growth across software and fintech. She’s excited about meeting outlier founders who are building products that truly delight customers. She enjoys learning about founders’ unique characteristics, their founding stories, and the empathy they have for their current and future customers.

Prior to Index Ventures, Shimin was the Head of Strategic Finance and Business Operations at Pilot, leading the product launch of two core products as well as several business initiatives including partnerships, comms, M&A, and other GTM initiatives. Before Pilot, she was an Engagement Manager at McKinsey working with tech and healthcare companies to help them solve strategic and operational problems. Before that, she also held roles at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.

Shimin graduated with highest honors from Princeton University with a B.A. in public policy and finance. In her free time, she enjoys walking her dog (find him @beauthelittlebear), playing board games, traveling, and learning new languages (4 down, more to go!).
