Jesse Draper, founding partner of Halogen Ventures, is a fourth-generation investor, but the first female. In this segment of Video Voices, Jesse shares that when she was a teenager she would join her father on his VC business trips and she quickly realized she was surrounded in meetings by only men. This helped shaped her view that “you can be what you can see” and she set out to work on leveling the playing field for future generations of women investors. Jesse hits on the differences between how men and women fundraise, how they discuss (or not) money, and even how and when they choose to be philanthropic with their money.
