Driving Impact with Diversity-Based Opportunity Funds
Zoom Webinar

We know that investors often look for patterns, referrals and pedigree to make the investment process efficient, safely fitting into established norms.

The unintended consequence is that brilliant founders without the right connections are often passed over. This expresses itself in many ways but often we see that LGBTQIA+, Black, Latinx, and Native American founders are largely left out of the VC ecosystem.

Today, companies are creating specific, application based, Opportunity Funds - their goals being inviting more underrepresented founders into the global ecosystem. This looks like a diverse Investment Committee that includes members from both inside and outside of the investment institution, the goal being to review at early stage investments alongside growth investments.

The result? Underestimated founders have access to direct capital.

Join StartOut Founders, Morrison & Foerster, and Bank of America/Merrill Lynch as we discuss how investors set up these kinds of funds, what current programs look like, how to maintain these funds, and how to bring investors and entrepreneurs into this ecosystem.

Our mission is to enable and empower entrepreneurs who have been excluded from access to capital, networks, and resources, such as women, people of color, and LGBTQIA communities.

Our founder community learns a unique tactical and strategic fundraising methodology that develops critical skills and insights and addressing the fundamental internal barriers associated with an unequal experience of entitlement.

Founders gain confidence, competence, and capability as they lead their raise, break open critical influence networks and deliver innovative ventures that embrace a broader community of stakeholders in both investment and returns.

Together, we’re insisting on a more equitable landscape of opportunity and access for a greater diversity of founders.

Drinks and snacks will be provided.

Indie.vc v 3.0 - Winter Tour 2019
Autodesk

Over the last few years, we’ve had the chance to host many events that expose founders to an alternative universe where companies they’ve been told can’t be built without massive amounts of VC funding are thriving with little, to no, outside investment. We often start these events by warning attendees that they won’t be able to unsee what they’re about to see. Many leave these events with a whole new perspective on not only what is possible, but why limiting exposure the traditional venture business model is beneficial for founders, employees and the cultures and values they’re hoping to embody with their businesses.

Rather than write another blog post or clever FAQ, we wanted to bring that same in-person experience to those considering investment from Indie.vc.

Over the next 2 months, we’ll be embarking on a tour of most major metros in the US (we tried picking towns that were a short-ish road trip away from just about anywhere). Our goal with these info sessions is to share our experiences and motives directly with the Indie-curious. They are open to founders interested in taking investment from Indie.vc and Angels/Funds interested in funding companies the way we do. We’re planning to have some founders we’ve backed, and founders who’ve built and scaled profitable businesses, join us for these events to answer questions and share their experiences embracing the values and tactics we preach.

Proudly hosted by PIE and PIE Shop in collaboration with Autodesk
