Dismantling the Growth vs. Impact Mindset with Mark Hubbard of Renew Ventures
When we think of venture capital, let's be honest, we think about the #1 goal being to make money. That's all well and good, but why don't we just as readily think of venture capital amplifying positive impact? The unfortunate reality is that many people view these two things as at odds with each other. You can either focus on making a lot of money or making a positive impact in the world. What can't it be both?
In this episode, we sit down with Mark Hubbard, Managing Partner at Renew Capital. Mark and his team are on a mission to dismantle the "growth vs. impact" mindset and remove barriers to capital for bold, diverse founders looking to generate impact at scale. By leading with empathy, Renew Capital is committed to investing in women and historically excluded founders solving some of society's biggest challenges.
Tune in to hear Mark's perspective on how the startup and investment landscape is changing, his advice for founders, and more.
