Greater Los Angeles Area
I founded Backstage Capital, a venture capital fund based in Los Angeles that invests in exceptional women, people of colour and LGBTQ tech founders. Started from scratch in Fall 2015, Backstage has now invested nearly $4m across nearly 90 companies. I have been featured in Forbes, Fortune, Black Enterprise, Quartz, Refinery29, FastCompany and more, and am the Season 7 subject of Gimlet's Startup podcast.
I entered the venture investing world from an unconventional path, and am happy to answer questions from founders, current investors, and those looking to get into investing or sharpen their thesis.
I am dedicated to minimising funding disparities in tech.
I started by using Clarity for 2 years to help answer pressing questions while building my investment fund. Now that I have seen nearly 3,000 startups, met with hundreds of investors, and been invited to speak at more than 100 conferences around the world, I'm excited to share some of the knowledge I've gained from the experience with you.
Being compensated for my time outside of the Backstage portfolio helps me continue to best serve our founders. You can also find me and reach out on twitter and via email. But for guaranteed time on the phone about a specific business question, booking via Clarity is your best bet.
