Our guest this week is Linnea Roberts. She’s the founder and CEO of Gingerbread Capital, the venture capital firm she started after she ‘flunked’ retirement. Inspired by her mom Ginger, her company is all about investing in female-founded companies. Including theSkimm (thanks, Linnea). On the couch, she talks to us about making it in the finance world, finding a support system, and (figuratively) winning an Academy Award.
