S3_E4: Olivia Hipkins
Olivia Hipkins, CFA and Managing Partner Gaia Global Ventures
Wonderful to chat with community member, and kind human Olivia Hipkins! We nerded out in this session, covering a range of interesting topics in ESG and Impact. She covered her experience in Private Equity, and some of the similarities and differences in the VC experience.
We discussed the CFA curriculum, and how ethics can tie into information management and materiality. The topic of Boards was fascinating — with shares around forming one, Board Observers versus Members and how best to help Founders. Check out this source by HBR, which helped in Olivia’s initial research on how to be an effective on a board.
There were also many valuable points shared around grant funding, hard tech, and how health-and-safety apply to the work at Gaia Global Ventures.
