“Venture capital is a historically difficult industry to break into. The lack of diversity that exists within the ecosystem creates an even higher barrier for minorities and individuals with non-traditional backgrounds. The most important thing we can do for our network is create the conditions for them to gain meaningful experiences, drive relevant opportunities and develop their own strategy for startup investing.”
