Please join us to learn with Kerry Rupp who will discuss innovative investment strategies, changing the way venture capital money has traditionally been invested. In her account, Rupp will discuss the philosophy developed by True Wealth Ventures, a venture-firm based in Austin. Noting data which demonstrated the high performance of women-led companies, coupled with the observation that only 2 percent of venture dollars go to women-led firms, True Wealth Ventures developed their investment philosophy which has guided their firm to date -- and holds significant implications for the field of innovation in investment vehicles and strategies. 

Kerry Rupp has more than 20 years of investment experience and has launched, developed and grown startup companies and new lines of business for established firms. As the prior CEO and General Partner at DreamIt, a Top Ten US startup accelerator and early-stage venture fund, Kerry was directly involved with the launch of over 150 companies. During her 5-year tenure with DreamIt, she grew its programs to five cities and raised and managed ~$20M in investment funds including DreamIt Access (minority entrepreneur), DreamIt Athena (female entrepreneur), and DreamIt Health programs.
