Did you know that 99% of venture capitalists and 86% of angel investors are male?  Believe it.  Today’s guest is Yvonne Campos, and before she started the Next Act Fund, she ran her own successful market research firm for 30 years.  She knows numbers and how to read them, and those figures are the only explanation she can come up with when asked why so many good female-run firms aren’t getting enough investment dollars.

 

Yvonne and her partners aren’t saying that there’s a conspiracy or anything, they’re just acting on the data.  The Next Act Fund is by women and for women - and it invests in opportunities that others sometimes don’t see.   


(We may look like marketing geniuses for releasing this right after last weekend’s widely popular Women’s Marches, but it’s just a lucky coincidence. This episode was scheduled a month in advance!)
