Angel Capital Association Board Member and Mindshift Capital general partner, Marcia Dawood, joins us to talk about raising capital, better angel investing, and the need for increased gender lens investments and what she’s doing about that in this episode of SUP-X Radio. Marcia is passionate about venture investing and investing in female entrepreneurs and she has lots to share on both subjects.
