This podcast series is produced in partnership with Project Entrepreneur, a program by UBS, and was reviewed before publication.
When we were beginning production on “Off the Sidelines” — a new investor education podcast series produced in partnership with Project Entrepreneur, a program by UBS — one of the first organizations we knew we had to speak with was Village Capital.
The goal of Project Entrepreneur, and by extension this podcast, is to break down barriers for female founders and advance inclusive capital, so it makes sense to start our series with an investor similarly focused on changing the status quo.
Since 2012, Victoria Fram has been a cofounder at Village Capital and is managing director of VilCap Investments, a seed-stage investment fund. Throughout her years of experience, she and VilCap have countered mainstream trends, pushing for a more equitable distribution of capital across geography, gender and ethnicity.
For anyone interested in becoming involved in investing, it’s important to understand the shape of the current landscape — and how one might attempt to uniquely navigate that landscape. Victoria provided a ton of great insight and advice, so check out our conversation to hear for yourself.
