In this episode, Hall welcomes Amy Salzhauer of Good Growth Capital. Good Growth Capital is a venture capital platform focused on early-stage technology companies. Good Growth Capital’s General Fund focuses on the east coast, filling the gap with early-stage technology investing, with partners located in Charleston SC, Boston and NY. The fund leverages proximity to closely support founders and connect portfolio companies.
In this episode, Amy shares her background before investing. Initially, she began working with scientists to get data for her doctoral dissertation at MIT. She was interested in why certain technologies successfully leave or don’t leave the lab, even if they might have either a positive economic impact or a positive social impact. This then led to a Master’s at Cambridge University in Plant Sciences with a focus on Molecular Biology, followed by an MBA at the Sloan School of Management at MIT. Writing her dissertation, she thought about how she enjoyed the work, and ended up starting multiple companies and becoming CEO of Ignition Ventures.
