Invest In Her host Catherine Gray talks with Founder Edith Dorsen and Attorney Jennifer Post with Women’s VC Fund II. At a time when there was little interest in women entrepreneurs, Edith Dorsen and her classmate from Harvard Business School recognized the capital gap existing for female founders and launched the Women’s Venture Capital Fund-- driven by the belief that leadership diversity is a major competitive advantage. It was the first VC fund in the country to focus on Series A stage companies in which senior leadership includes both women and men. Based on the success of its first fund, WomensVCFund ll closed in 2018.
