The VentureFizz Podcast: Elizabeth Galbut - Co-Founder and Managing Partner at SoGal Ventures

For the 82nd episode of our podcast, I interviewed Elizabeth Galbut, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at SoGal Ventures.

Elizabeth has founded two venture capital firms. While attending business school, she founded A-Level Capital, the first student-led VC firm powered by John Hopkins students.

Her current firm, SoGal Ventures is the first female-led millennial VC firm. They focus on investing in diverse founding teams that are trying to solve major problems in the consumer or healthcare industry.

Elizabeth and her Co-Founder & Partner, Pocket Sun, have invested in over 50 companies including EverlyWell, Function of Beauty, Little Spoon, and many more.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • Advice for founders on getting media attention.
  • Elizabeth’s early professional background and the story of how A-Level Capital came to be.
  • What led her down the path of starting SoGal Ventures, as well as all the details behind the firm and what they are targeting for investments. 
  • The importance of diversity in entrepreneurship.
  • How Elizabeth manages her time.
  • Plus, a lot more.
