Fundraising in Uncertain Times with Harlem Capital
It’s no secret that some founders have been historically overlooked by traditional VCs. Harlem Capital, a New York-based VC fund, is righting that wrong by solely investing in women- and minority-run companies that are shaking up the status quo.
The fund started in 2016 after the founders realized that there was a huge lack of capital going to talented women and people of color. They’re industry and geography agnostic — and recently closed a $40 million fund that will bring them closer to their goal of investing in over 1,000 underrepresented entrepreneurs over the next two decades.
During our digital events series, we chatted with Kelly Kopchik Goldstein and Gabby Cazaeu, two Senior Associates at Harlem Capital, about founders’ top fundraising and pitching questions. Here’s a recap of their advice.
