Our Speaker

Grace Rodriguez knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the funding fence. As a frequent startup mentor, advisor, and pitch competition judge for accelerators and incubators including MassChallenge, Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute, Capital Factory, WeWork Labs, and Rice University’s Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Grace reviews hundreds of pitch decks a year. Through this experience and her time at DFJ Mercury (now “Mercury Fund”), she has learned what venture capitalists and angel investors look for, with access to over 1,000 investors in a variety of industries. Grace has developed a keen understanding on why so many businesses fail to secure the funding they need in the start-up and growth phases, and which approaches to raising capital really work.

And as an entrepreneur and non-profit leader, she has helped raise funds for her own ventures, securing capital from major stakeholders, angel investors, bankers, family and friends, and even government and non-profit grants. She is keen to share with you what happens behind the scenes when investors evaluate and discuss deals!
