Today we are joined by Michelle Scarborough from BDC Venture Capital. We talk about her work as a VC and hear her thoughts for those who are thinking about getting funding from a venture capital firm.
Michelle is the Managing Director of the Strategic Investments Fund and the Women in Technology Fund at BDC. There she manages over $200 million dollars in capital. We hear from her about these funds, her objectives and mandates and BDC’s primary focus on returns and economic growth.
She also delves into the human side of venture investments and how these play out during pitching and ongoing relationships. Michelle has so much to offer in the way of advice and reflections on the space. She talks about the difficult conversations that often arise between funders and founders and how to avoid these as much as possible.
She has so much great insight and many of the thoughts she shares could be the thing that helps you land your next investor, so join us to hear it all.
