“There are not a lot of investors that are so deeply dedicated to promoting women founders, and I feel very lucky to work at Rothenberg Ventures where Mike Rothenberg cares very deeply about this.”
Fran Hauser, a Limited Partner from New York, highlights Rothenberg’s commitment to bridging the gender gap typically seen in Silicon Valley, “When you look at our portfolio, 20% of our portfolio companies are female founded, which is much higher than the industry average of 11%.”
Kegan Schouwenburg, founder of Sols expresses her appreciation for Mike’s approach to diversity and innovation, “Rothenberg is revolutionizing venture capital.”
Mike’s commitment to diversity extends beyond gender. He was recognized by CBS in a story for hosting a high school workshop to bring underserved communities, who typically do not get exposure to cutting edge technology, to experience some frontier technologies. The students were able to discuss frontier technologies, like virtual reality, with the engineers and executives from tech firms.
