How to Raise Kids to be Entrepreneurs (Who Don’t Take Orders)

I spoke at Womensphere a few weeks ago, a conference centered around empowering women and girls. I discussed my family’s approach to raising entrepreneurial kids, and some parallels to our approach to supporting our portfolio entrepreneurs.

One of the issues I talked about was our track record of investing in women-founded companies. I emphasize that our fiduciary duty is to look for the best entrepreneurs who will build the most meaningful companies. It happens that we have invested in women-led companies much more than the average, in the course of doing our fiduciary duty.

(Warning: entrepreneurial kids are precisely the sort of kids who are less likely to go to bed when you need them to. Unfortunately.)

I’d love your feedback on my deck.
