Episode details

Today we are happy to introduce you to Gesa, General Partner of Auxxo Female Catalyst Fund and Board Member of the German Startups Association. Auxxo is a venture capital firm co-investing into startups with at least one female founder in Europe.

In this episode you’ll learn:

– Gesa’s perspective on the biases for and against female focused funds

– Why Auxxo invests in female founders and how that focus gives Auxxo a competitive advantage in winning competitive deals

– How Auxxo is thinking about their co-invest strategy in the light of the new market

– How Auxxo managed to raise their fund with more than 50% of their LPs being women (in terms of €€ as well headcount)

– How Gesa thinks about firm development, fund II, and what’s in store for Auxxo
