Hi, I’m Victoria, founder of VIZ VENTURES. I have been on the front line of international business and top brands for 20 years, across Strategy, Finance, Business Development, Sales & Marketing and Global Talent Management. My experiences range from international commodity trading to investment banking, and building a Global Employment Company from scratch for one of the world’s largest energy service companies whilst raising two small kids.

Having proved as an ‘intrapreneur’, I decided to set up VIZ VENTURES in 2018, opening up to advisory projects, part-time GM / Board roles and housing collaborations with (mainly UK) tech-startups I have supported as an early-stage angel investor / advisor (from fintech to future of work / living / wellbeing). Three key pillars of VIZ VENTURES are Talent, Strategy and Ventures, as I am always scouting for exciting opportunities and connecting the dots.

As my mission is very similar to 50inTech, I decided to put my expertise at the service of female founders of the community who are looking to fundraise as a priority. But also open perspectives for those looking to invest, advise etc.

During my online “mini think tank” animated with 50inTech’s co-founder Gaëlle Le Goff, we will: 

  • share some personal journeys, what do we notice, what are the things we would want to change, and provide advice to female founders
  • talk about how to excite more women about angel investing, how do we make sure the VC industry opens up towards female talent and diversifies in general
  • give some conclusions around best ways to go about connecting the dots, ‘strengthening’ the teams, building ‘economies of scale’ in thought processes around new ventures, and figure out the right channels to promote for increasing the likelihood of success; 

& much more!

Join our online interactive workshop for the 50inTech community on Thursday, June 25th, live on Zoom!

When: Thursday 25th of June on Zoom 📹
