About the Author

Alysia Silberg was born to blaze trails. As the daughter of a Hollywood makeup artist who worked with screen legends like Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, and Marlon Brando, she grew up with a dream of making her own mark in a world far away. A math and science prodigy, she nurtured her entrepreneurial instincts while still in grade school, starting her first business, an import-export agency, at age 11. Today, Alysia is a leading venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, where she mentors tech startups and helps them go public. She is CEO & General Partner of the investment firm Street Global. ​As a thought-and-knowledge leader, Alysia earned acclaim for her groundbreaking online radio show, Global Fireside Chats, bringing together global industry titans to share insights on our fast-changing world. She is a UN Women Empower Women Global Champion, and an international board director with sovereign wealth fund experience. "Unemployable, How I Hired Myself" detailing her life story and guide to financial freedom, is Alysia's first book.

"Alysia's story is one of true grit, determination, and perseverance. I have watched her achieve her goals over many years. I was struck by her presence from the moment we first me in her native South Africa. She has set her goals high and never relented facing hiccups along the way. She never gave up. Her story is an inspiration to so many entrepreneurs who defy the naysayers in life. Alysia sets us all on the right course in life!"

Mohamed El Dahshan, United Nations Senior Economic Advisor:

"Disarmingly candid and brutally honest... Unemployable is a boundlessly enjoyable read."

Greg Sherwin, Global Faculty, Singularity University:

"Inspires emerging business leaders to turn their challenges and 'outsider' differences into sources of strength."
