Monique Villa

As our community continues to grow, our mission to increase the number of startup success stories in the Southeast will take several forms. This includes:

  • Cross-regional collaboration: We leverage a growing expert capital network from across the U.S. to assist founders with visibility into the venture capital landscape.

  • Career development of future investors from underrepresented backgrounds: We are highly motivated to bring new diversity initiatives spearheaded in Silicon Valley to the Southeast.

  • #BuildInSE: As the Southeast region’s startup activity grows, we are dedicated to creating opportunities for connectivity within the region.
