Investing in Women of Color with Gayle Jennings O’Byrne and Pialy Aditya, General Partners of the WOCstar Fund
Gayle Jennings O’Byrne and Pialy Aditya, General Partners of the WOCstar Fund, join host and Vice Dean of the Wharton Social Impact Initiative Katherine Klein to discuss investing in women of color. Their early stage venture fund invests in women of color and their diverse tech startups. Black women are the fastest growing group of start-up founders. Yet, biases in investing cause major disparities in the amount of venture capital dollars they receive. WOCstar Fund’s goal is to not only change the trajectory for the companies they invest in, but also help other investors find these innovative and successful businesses.
