Welcome to Newport Living and Lifestyles Wealth Strategy series where we meet, drink 🥂and discuss. 📈. The wealth strategy series was born from a small group expressing our wanting to be more active traders in the stock market. Our first meeting was at 41N looking out onto the yacht filled ocean with wine and hors d’oevre’s sharing our visions of what wealth means to each of us. The NL&L Wealth strategies investment club is one of the philanthropic arms of NL&L. The goal for these series of speakers and meetings is to empower women in the financial market and become more confident, educated, independent, and most importantly, independently wealthy financial investors.
About this event
Caroline Lewis, Managing Partner of Rogue Women’s Fund kicked off the first Wealth Strategies Series at Newport’s historic and prestigious Tennis Hall of Fame. A light lunch was served as Caroline discussed the benefits of venture capital as an investment diversification strategy and the impact and return potential of investing in women-led technology companies.
By 2030, American women are expected to control much of the $30 trillion in financial assets — a potential wealth transfer of such magnitude that it approaches the annual GDP of the United States. Women-led companies represent 46% of all US businesses and is growing at a rate of 112%. However, only 2% of all venture capital dollars are invested in women-led companies. Women are being left out of a massive wealth generating asset class with only 8% of venture partners and 4% of venture fund investors being women.
Caroline Lewis is the Managing Partner of Rogue Women’s Fund and Kauffman Fellow. Caroline joined Rogue Venture Partners in 2018, leading a new strategy to focus on women-led tech companies. Rogue was founded in 2011 and has continually performed in the top quartile for all venture funds – returning ~300% on Funds I and II. In just two years, Rogue Women’s Fund I invested $2MM in 11 companies that have gone on to raise over $30MM, employ over 100 people, and provide a 20% base return to investors. Capitalizing on the success of Fund I – Rogue Women is building towards a larger Fund II to 10x its impact and returns. Caroline currently sits on two non-profit boards and six portfolio company boards.
