On this episode Pat sits down with Lolita Taub, founding partner of Ganas VC, an early stage fund that invests in community-driven business models in the Americas.
We dive into Lolita's journey into venture, why immigrant communities, especially Latinx still have an ownership gap to other communities in the US and how that translates into a low representation in start-up founders and VC and how community-driven business models serve as a moat for startups.

You will learn about: 

  • Why generational wealth is important and how tech entrepreneurship and VC can get you there 
  • Community-driven business models, why they are powerful and how they affect company metrics
  • Fundraising for an emerging fund in the current environment 


You can find Lolita on LinkedIn or Twitter and make sure to check out her newsletter
