ISSUE – Dec. 15 | Sophia Amoruso: Why I Raised Venture Capital Again

Today marks the announcement of the close of Girlboss’ $3.1 million round of seed funding, led by one of the best investors in the valley and (thank the lord) a woman—Nicole Quinn of top-tier Silicon Valley venture firm, Lightspeed Venture Partners. Joining her, alongside our existing investors Slow, BAM, Human Ventures, and others, are Gary Vaynerchuk and Troy Carter, two entrepreneurs I admire and respect so much.

I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to have their support in what we’re building, and am equally thrilled and honored to have been given this second chance by our community of incredible women, many of whom have followed my own ups and downs, choosing to continue rallying together for Girlboss. And me, surprisingly, despite it all.
