On the show today is Paige Doherty. Paige is the founding partner at Behind Genius Ventures and the author of Seed to Harvest. Behind Genius Ventures is a “Gen Z Fund” that invests in early-stage startups. Seed to Harvest is an illustrated book that explains venture capital in a way that even kids can understand.
I wanted to bring her on because she raised an entire fund primarily through Twitter, which really showcases the power of an audience.
You’ll hear about how she helped kickstart the viral EyeMouthEye 👁👄👁 movement, her cold email outreach that’s led to getting in contact with influential and famous people around the nation, and what she’s seeing in her portfolio of early-stage SaaS companies.
