Philanthropic Venturing — Valiente Fund's Maria Rodriguez

Philanthropic Venturing — Valiente Fund Executive Director Maria Rodriguez

This week’s VentureFuel Visionary is Maria Rodriquez, Executive Director of the Valiente Fund. It is a donor and funder collaborative addressing the lack of investment of philanthropic funds for Latine leaders, organizations, and communities. They just launched the Valiente Accelerator to support emerging Latin groups with grants and operational capacity to accelerate their growth.

In the episode, we talk about why critical moments demand innovation, the need to scale bold solutions, and the power of microecosystems. We also discuss the value of starting before you are ready and how to change systems through collaboration.


VentureFuel builds and accelerates innovation programs for industry leaders by helping them unlock the power of External Innovation via startup collaborations.
