14 Jan 40: Funding FEST-ive Startups, Family & Other F Words with Sonya Brown of Norwest Venture Partners
The 4oth episode of the podcast is in love with f words. Like forty, family, funding and firsts (aren’t f words the best?). With a mini guest appearance from my little guy and lady at the top of the show to the first investor I’ve had the privilege of sharing with listeners, it’s a fun 40th that mixes insight into the life and mind of the person sitting on the other side of the table when you’re out there pitching your heart out. With today’s guest, Sonya Brown, a general partner at Norwest Venture Partners, I’m lucky to have not just any ‘ole venture capitalist on the show, but one with an impressive track record working with companies with ties to FEST, including Kendra Scott Design and Madison Reed.
But wait, there’s more below!
This stuff is key to the show’s success, and I appreciate you helping me play the game. <3 <3 <3
