Alicia Robb is founder and CEO of Next Wave Impact, which is a movement driving impact, diversity, and inclusion in early stage investing. Their global fund is building a portfolio of investments in early-stage impact companies with 99 women investors led by an experienced investment committee of ten women.

And that number is only more staggeringly low for women of color. She works with Next Wave Impact to disrupt the traditional VC structure—empowering more women and people of color to invest, so that minority founders are better represented in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
