Ask Candice about her new $50 million fund with her partner (an AI tech guru) to invest in startups founded by minorities.
Lightship Capital is one of several new firms putting more capital and resources into creating a more diverse VC and founder community.
"Minorities are over-mentored and under-capitalized. There was no way of solving this issue without putting funding behind it."
"We're trying to normalize the fact that intelligence is equally distributed and that opportunity isn't. If people are given an opportunity to start a company and be capitalized, you'll see the same number of wins from this community we're supporting."
