Lolita is a first-gen Latinx woman who has been working in tech for a great amount of time now. Yep, 14 years!
During that time, she has worn many different hats. From tech startup investor, founder, operator, to side-hustler, just like she says...
I love doing it all but it's a lot of work
In a few numbers, Lolita's impact is +$50M of sales, 11 angel, and 26 VC investments which you can find here alongside great articles about her, accomplishments, and her mission to create a world where tech is created by and for the diversity of our population.
Lolita does a lot more and I trust her when she says it's a lot of work.
Alongside the many hats she wears, Lolita is speaking at events, reviewing pitch decks to help founders, and write her personal paid newsletter, which we will get into now.
Lolita has also launched the Community Fund, which invests in community-driven companies. This move comes with the trend of building companies and products with and to serve a community.
The newsletter is a "practical bi-weekly newsletter for early-stage founders, funders, and operator friends. It’s made by and with the underestimated community at heart."
Each week, Lolita shares her best resources and advice for early-stage founders, funders, and operator friends.
Tons of great content is shared each week and Lolita is also going all in on building in public with the Community Fund mentioned earlier. She shares how the hiring process for the 9 investment partners she is looking to onboard. From ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation, Lolita aims to attract the most diverse pool of candidates to help achieve her mission.
Strongly recommend subscribing and following Lolita on Twitter to keep up with what she's achieving with the Community Fund and how she is pushing for more diversity in tech.
