Hi y’all! Happy Friday.
At the risk of sounding trite and cliche… How did we get here? Both to another Friday and another month. I can’t believe we are in August already!
Thank you all so much for the supportive comments on the recent announcement of my investment in Social Mama app.
Here’s a link to the Houston Business Journal article. And in case you can’t access it, here is an excerpt:
Houston-based SocialMama, a mobile app to connect mothers for relationships and resources, received a $150,000 investment from Carrie Colbert, a Houston-based investor. Social Mama was created by co-founder and CEO Amanda Ducach.
Across the United States, female-founded startups raised just 2.2 percent of all venture capital investments in 2018, according to TechCrunch. Colbert said that one of her missions as an investor is to support female-founded, female-focused ventures.
I look forward to sharing more about it soon! For now, if you’re a mama, be sure to download the app!
