Sponsored Post by Ryan Frederick of AWH

Investors can be elusive and misunderstood by many Founders. There is a great mystery behind how some founders and startups manage to get access to investors and funding from them while others don’t. For many Founders and startups, working the normal process, if there even is one, doesn’t get them access and awareness with investors, let alone the funding they are seeking. The truth is, investors are just like everyone else and they don’t want to miss out on a good thing.

S7E4 – Densil Porteous, Pride Fund 1

On this episode, Elio interviews Densil Poretous, CEO of Pride Fund 1. Pride Fund 1 invests in early-stage and growth companies led by LGBTQ+ people, as well as companies which uplift that community. Very early in his life, Densil discovered his love for making connections. Starting by working in the admissions office of his alma mater, Kenyon College, he then transitioned to the Bay Area where he did a lot of nonprofit and community service work. Returning to Ohio, Densil felt his involvement in organizations that promote and support LGBTQ and other underrepresented communities was extremely important, which led to him becoming the Vice-Chair of the Board at Equitas Health. He continued his pursuit of connecting and serving which has ultimately manifested in Pride Fund 1.
