Broadening the On-ramp for Women-run Companies

Episode #6: Using Conscious Leadership to Be a Better VC

For this Fund81 podcast interview, I invited my business partner at the MergeLane venture fund for high-potential startups with at least one woman in leadership, Sue Heilbronner, to talk about Conscious Leadership.

Conscious Leadership has been a game-changer for our partnership and our investing. Just a few of the questions we tackle in this episode….

What is Conscious Leadership?

How has Conscious Leadership improved our partnership?

Why does Conscious Leadership make us better venture capitalists?

How do we use Conscious Leadership in due diligence?

How do we use Conscious Leadership to accelerate our portfolio companies?

To learn more about Conscious Leadership:

  1. Check out Conscious.is
  2. Read the book the 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership.
  3. Join MergeLane for Leadership Camp. Attendees have included VCs, startup leaders, big company executives, non-profit directors, police captains, and team members from Apple, Oculus, Oracle, Techstars, SketchUp, Sendgrid, Formlabs, and more. The reviews are tremendous. One of my recent favorites: "Opened a door to self-awareness that I didn’t even know existed."- Natty Zola, Managing Director, Techstars

Enjoy.
