I just published an in depth profile for Pando on one of the most successful and yet unheard of female VCs in the business: Ann Miura-Ko.
She was having children amid finishing her PhD, launching a new fund, and doing her first investments– and was confined to bedrest. Her partner, Mike Maples, describes how all working moms are essentially James Bond; ie the develop an ability to just summon up skills at will no matter how chaotic the situation is.
At the end of the piece Ann puts it in terms any mom can relate to: “I was out with my kids recently and one of them got sick. I literally had to catch his vomit in my hand. That’s how we have to roll.”
I will have Ann as a future podcast guest– I promise. As a reminder, we are 60% towards our goal of this becoming a weekly show. If you know a friend who may want to support the project, please share! Our next podcast with Jessica Herrin is phenomenal.
