One of venture’s most iconic duos wants to have a word with you
Hello, and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.
This is our Wednesday show and this time we’re niching down to a duo, thinking about their work and unpacking the rest. This week Natasha interviewed one of venture’s most iconic duos: Mitch Kapor and Freada Kapor Klein of Kapor Capital. The investors recently published a book, “Closing the Equity Gap: Creating Wealth and Fostering Justice in Startup Investing,” connecting scrappy stories of entrepreneurs to their investment thesis to the returns that other venture capitalists are clamoring to land.
On today’s episode, we’re talking about:
Their book and why the pair chose to do it now
Mitch and Freada’s broader thoughts on impact investing
criteria for success and investor due diligence.
