If you been following me and my work at Unstuck Labs and Reyets: Social Justice Network over the years, you know what values are most important to me and my personal ethos of building wealth by doing good, and investing in what you believe.
I have become a Limited Partner at RareBreed Ventures , VITALIZE Venture Capital and Rogue Women's Fund - three innovative venture capital firms that are leading the charge in promoting diversity, shaping the future of work, and empowering women entrepreneurs.
But what sets these firms apart, you might ask? Allow me to delve deeper.
RareBreed Ventures is tackling one of the biggest challenges facing the tech industry - diversity and inclusion.
Despite research showing that diverse and inclusive teams drive better business results, founders from underrepresented backgrounds still face significant barriers to securing funding. RareBreed is working to level the playing field and bridge the funding gap for these entrepreneurs.
Their commitment to diversity and inclusion is truly inspiring, and I am proud to be a part of their efforts to create a more equitable tech ecosystem.
Vitalize.VC is shaping the future of work through their investments in companies that are driving digital transformation and innovation in the work environment. With the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating the shift towards remote work and digital solutions, Vitalize.VC's focus on the future of work could not be more relevant.
I am excited about their expert team and supporting their efforts to bring cutting-edge solutions to the workplace.
And finally, Rouge Women's Fund is addressing one of the most pressing issues in venture capital - the gender gap.
Despite the fact that women-led startups outperform their male-led counterparts, they receive just 2% of venture funding.
Rogue Women's Fund is working to change this by empowering women entrepreneurs and promoting gender equality in the tech industry. I am honored to support their mission and help drive positive change for women in entrepreneurship.
The decision to become a Limited Partner at RareBreed Ventures, Vitalize.VC, and Rogue Women's Fund is rooted in my belief in their missions, expertise, and impact. I am eager to support these visionary teams and support the growth and success of their portfolio companies.
This is not just about me - this is about all of us working together to create a better future.
Gale Wilkinson McKeever (Mac) Conwell,II Caroline Lewis … Thanks for the opportunity, energy and vision.
