Women find themselves a minority in tech companies, even in Silicon Valley. Fewer find themselves in as co-founders of companies that go through multiple rounds of venture capital and scale successfully to be an acquisition target, or with potential for an initial public offering. Minnie used her success to become compassionate capitalist and invest her time, knowledge, experience and money into other startups, first as an angel investor then as a venture capitalist. Minnie Ingersoll has done all of this and has valuable insights to share with Karen's Compassionate Capitalist Podcast audience. Minnie Ingersoll is s partner at TenOneTen Ventures and has quite an impressive resume; she was an early product manager at Google for over a decade before she co-founded (and became COO of) Shift, an online marketplace for used cars that she scaled to $100M.
