Daniel: I started Visible Hands with my team because I saw — and continue to see — too many talented people being denied the opportunity to build something extraordinary. Just recently, I witnessed an investor dismiss a female entrepreneur because her company served mostly women. I was baffled and jumped in to challenge the investor’s assumption that women-focused businesses are not investable. This is not okay and it happens all too often. Visible Hands exist to disrupt such normalized perceptions. We believe that investing in women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups is a significant investment opportunity. It is the key to creating a more prosperous and equitable future for everyone.
