Today, we are very excited to announce that long-time Zane Advisor, Stefanie Diaz, MBA, is joining our team as a Partner. She will both play a key role in our capital raise efforts and be integrally involved in our founder-focused programming as Chair of the Board for Zane Allies and Angels.
Stefanie has 15 years of experience spanning marketing, entrepreneurship, and investor relations. Most recently, she founded the investor relations firm, Powered by Verve.
She has been named an Atlanta Startup Wonder Woman by Hypepotamus and listed as one of 39 Atlanta Female Leaders to Follow by Startup Sisters.
Stefanie also serves as Co-Chair for TiE Atlanta Angels, an Advisor at Atlanta Tech Village, and a mentor at Techsquare Labs’ Atlanta Startup Battle. She continues to run The Women Only Experience (WOE) an organization for female founders and thought leaders she founded in 2017.
Stefanie has also created a podcast, She Conquers Capital, where she amplifies the voices of diverse female CEO’s, venture partners, and angel investors.
We are elated to have Stefanie join our growing team and look forward to her expanding involvement in both Zane Venture Fund and Zane Access. Getting capital into the hands of female and minority entrepreneurs is hard, as we know from our experiences.
We know that Stefanie’s passion for empowering underrepresented founders and her expertise in raising capital will be a key asset in our fund’s success.
