 April Underwood Biography

April Underwood is head of Platform at Slack, the messaging app for teams, where she drives key growth initiatives and oversees platform products, partnerships, API integrations and developer relations.

Previously, April was the former director of product at Twitter and left the company to start #Angels, an angel-round investment group consisting entirely of former and current female Twitter execs. The group arrived at a crucial time in Silicon Valley, when Twitter’s own workforce is merely 30% female and the venerable VC firm Kleiner Perkins has been embroiled in a sex-discrimination lawsuit.

April holds an MBA from University of California at Berkeley (Haas) and a BBA in Management Information Systems from University of Texas at Austin.
