Attracting Angel Investors &/or Venture Capital #foundingmomsf

Here’s the first part of the talk!

Last week I gave a talk to the Founding Moms’ Exchange in San Francisco about raising investment for female entrepreneurs.  It was a great crowd of mompreneurs & we had a fabulous conversation about the issues.

“There’s no question that there is a gender gap when it comes to businesses attracting funding. Pemo Theodore has spent the past two years interviewing angel investors and venture capitalists to find out why women-owned businesses are so often left out, and more importantly, what we can do about it. Anne Raimondi, Co-Founder & CEO of One Jackson will join us to provide her recent real-world experience raising VC. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to learn how to perfect your pitch!”

Anne Raimondi, CoFounder OneJackson joined us for the 2nd part of the talk.  Excuse the lack of centering of the camera – my videographer was not present to ensure it was centered.
Anne’s career has been focused on fast-growth consumer and consumer technology companies including Gymboree and BlueNile, where she was a member of the founding team. At eBay, Anne launched eBay Stores and headed marketing, mechandising and all seller features, and she was head of product and user experience at Zazzle. She served as VP of Product & Marketing for Insider Pages (sold to Citysearch / IAC) and VP of Marketing for SurveyMonkey before starting One Jackson. A mother of three, Anne received her BA & MBA from Standford University. When she’s not working or at swim meets, Anne serves as a parent volunteer Art Vistas docent helping to teach art in public schools.
