Our story

We combine a client-friendly approach with years of experience and proven methodologies. Additionally, as a diverse, female-led company working in technology, we are also able to offer a unique perspective on your products and process.

Together, Shawnnah and the team identified two key areas where they could impact the innovative healthcare and life science industries:


As skilled professionals and consultants, with a proven track record of success, who could apply their extensive expertise to all stages of 3rd party product development and help clients avoid common mistakes.


As mentors and advisors, who for the same reasons as listed above, could help young start-ups in the industry find their footing and succeed.

With numerous products developed and an ever-growing investment portfolio, the team's
client-friendly approach is finding success on both counts.

Meet Shawnnah Monterrey


20+ years’ experience in the medical industry, Shawnnah Monterrey knows a thing or two about guiding innovative products to market.

Prior to founding BeanStock Ventures, she obtained a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of California, San Diego and an executive MBA from San Diego State University, then went on to hold product development management positions across numerous global firms, including Illumina, Invetech, Medtronic and Carl Zeiss Meditec. Through this work, she continued to develop a passion for innovation in medical devices, life sciences, and biotechnology.

She also developed a strong belief that her diverse expertise and passion was limited within the constraints of the organization in which she belonged, and that, to make a true difference in the way healthcare products were delivered to the market, she had to set out for herself.

With that, BeanStock Ventures was born.
