In this episode of Impactful Conversations, Kaela Colwell, San Francisco-based partner in Morrison & Foerster’s Social Enterprise and Impact Investing Group, interviews Malcolm Robinson, founder and executive director of the Black Venture Capital Consortium, or BVCC, which launched an on-campus, four-track degree program in venture capital, entrepreneurship, user experience design, and software engineering at historically black colleges and universities across the country, among other projects.
Kaela and Malcolm discuss, among other things, Malcolm’s transition from investing to charitable work and how he founded BVCC. Malcolm also explains his goals of bringing diversity to the startup and venture capital space and the synergies between BVCC’s internship program, scholarship program and student-led fund. “So seeing firsthand the lack of diversity in the startup space and the VC space, as well as having more free time, is really what drove me to create Black Venture Capital. Consortium, ”he says.
