Bright Ventures, Founder

"I am an investor, executive coach, strategy consultant with over a decade of experience coaching venture-backed founders. I integrate best practices in finance, social justice, management, leadership, and personal development to drive positive transformation in people, companies, industries and communities. My mission is to unite diverse cohorts of leaders to solve business and societal challenges and grow their businesses collectively, and to see themselves and each other differently.

In 2014, I founded Bright Ventures as an avenue for innovation. We aim to build a better future alongside companies of all kinds.

Our fund invests in and builds the next generation of inclusively-led ventures. Our partnerships with market shaping corporations drive economic inclusion through coaching and training leaders and high-impact stakeholder engagement initiatives. Our community creates collective value by bringing together diverse innovators to learn, design, build and transact."
