Episode 98: How Venture Capitalist Ebony Pope Is Paving The Way For Startups To Get Funding

Today in the guest chair, we have a certified boss. If you don’t already know this woman, this is a name you need to jot down and follow. Her name is Ebony Pope and she is the Director of US Ventures at Village Capital. She oversees Village Capital’s work in finding and supporting US start-ups in the five sectors that receive investment from Vilcap Investments.

Ebony graduated with her MBA from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business in 2015, focusing on strategy and entrepreneurship. While at Ross, she traveled to Tanzania, where she developed and taught a business curriculum for agriculture technology entrepreneurs as an Enterprise Consultant for Land O’Lakes. Additionally, she was Education Circle Director for the Ross’s Social Venture Fund.

Prior to Ross, Ebony worked at New Urban Learning, a charter education management company focused on preparing Detroit students to successfully graduate from four-year colleges and universities. She is also a former Googler and holds a B.B.A in Finance from Howard University.

Hi! I’m Nicaila, the Creator and Host of the Side Hustle Pro Podcast. I started Side Hustle Pro when I was a side hustler myself. I was a digital marketer at NPR by day, side hustler by night. Through the powerful stories shared on this show and the courage to launch my own initiatives, I was able to quit my own job and go full time with Side Hustle Pro.
