Creating The Motown of Venture Capital

Mar 12, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

How would you create a venture capital fund with no team, no capital and no previous exits? How would that fund identify and support an entirely new asset class? How can funds thrive while challenging conventional perspectives and approaches? Black Star Fund Founder and CEO Kwame Anku walks through the journey of doing just that and more as he tells the story of building a "first of a kind" fund and sharing lessons learned, success stories, and key themes that leap frogged his fund, portfolio companies, and investors years into the future.
