Monique Woodard joins 500 Startups as 1st black partner
from USA Today
Monique Woodard has joined 500 Startups as its first African-American venture partner to increase the firm's investments in black and Latino tech entrepreneurs, who have historically received a tiny fraction of U.S. venture funding. The appointment of a black investor at the start-up accelerator and venture firm "sends a huge signal that black investors are needed and that we should have a seat at the table," Woodard told USA TODAY.
