How to Build a Better Capitalization Stack

Join us for a webinar on March 18th at 9 AM PST, with special guests Gillian Muessig and Anne F. Kennedy, Co-Founders of Outlines Venture Group

Over a quarter of century of data illuminates that women-led, diverse leadership teams return the highest ROI to their investors. And yet, women receive less than 3% of conventional venture capital.

We need a discussion of how to change the numbers around venture capital and women. Let’s begin with a view of emerging venture capital options available to entrepreneurs building powerful companies. Let’s take a look at the Capitalization Stack.

Gillian Muessig and Anne F. Kennedy talk about The Sybilla Masters Fund, how their investment lens differs from that of traditional venture funding, and why it is vitally important that we challenge how – and where – investments are being made.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why traditional venture funding likely isn’t the best funding option.
  • The benefits of alternative funding models, equity and venture debt funding, and how to choose the best option for your business.
  • Why gender lens investing is important and how you can harness it to your advantage.
