Justin Gordon (@justingordon212) talks with Lolita Taub (@lolitataub), GP at Ganas Ventures where she invests in pre-seed and seed community-driven companies in the US and Latin America. She’s on a mission to change the narrative about who's an investor, who we invest in, and the types of founders that build unicorns. With 15 years working within the Silicon Valley ecosystem, Lolita has accomplished $70M+ in sales and made 90+ investments as an angel investor, Scout at Lightspeed Venture Partners, and VC at Backstage Capital and The Community Fund. She is also a Co-Founder of proprietary matching tools Startup-Investor Matching Tool, the GP-LP Matching Tool, and the LaaS community which brings along a community of over 4K+ founders, funders, and ecosystem friends. Forbes and Inc Magazine have featured her as a woman promoting investment in underestimated founders and funders. She has a BA from the University of Southern California and an MBA from the IE Business School. Lolita is currently in LATAM, hunting for unicorns, and most importantly, she is a dog mom to the cutest Dachshund mix, Choco.
