At Alpha Edison, we seek to back the most creative, innovative, and bold founders, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, height, weight, or favorite flavor of Gatorade.
For too long, access to venture funding has been largely network-driven and biased to favor certain demographics. We know that great ideas come from everywhere - but somewhere between ideation and funding, the diversity ratios fall apart. There are many points of failure along the entrepreneurial journey (and let’s talk if you have ideas) where women and minorities face disproportionate hurdles, but in 2018, “access” should not be one of them.
So we are starting Alpha Edison Office Hours.
Every Friday, members of our investment team will hold office hours at our HQ in Los Angeles. These are not intended to be pitch meetings; rather they are a time to talk about your business, get feedback, access functional resources, and meet members of our team.
The meetings we take will be with founders whose backgrounds are at least proportionate to the gender, race, sexual orientation, and other diversity metrics reflective of our country. Our backyard of LA is a diverse community of people, expertise, and ideas - and we’re thrilled to foster that community with the AE ecosystem.
We look forward to seeing you at Office Hours.
