From Underdog to Top Dog

From Underdog to Top Dog

This week's VentureFuel Visionary features Kathleen Carbone, Principal, Director of Advisory, and a Senior Family Advisor at Parcion Private Wealth, leading a panel discussion with founders from three startup companies.

On the panel were Jamie Norwood & Cynthia Plotch, the dynamic duo behind FemTech startup Stix; Isoken Igbinedion, Founder and CEO of Parfait, an AI-powered startup disrupting the $13 billion custom wig industry; and Kathryn Harrison, Founder and CEO of Magpie,  a venture-backed fintech platform democratizing access to alternative assets.

Originally recorded at our 2024 Rogue Women event earlier this spring, this conversation covers everything from their founder stories to their elevator pitches, why they persisted, and how they were able to achieve success. This episode highlights how these founders went from being overlooked during the hype to steady and soaring during a downturn.
