The Consumer VC takes a look into early-stage consumer investing and venture capital. If you are interested in learning about consumer trends, have a b2c business and interested in learning about the fundraising process at the early stage, you have come to the right place. Mike interviews some of the top venture capitalists in the world that focus on B2C and consumer type companies or have a deep track record investing in these categories such as marketplaces, SaaS, social, CPG and non-tech subscription. Mike also interviews founders that are building some of the most disruptive consumer facing companies in the world. The conversation usually includes the insight the founder discovered, fundraising strategy, and the pitch. This podcast also includes bonus episodes. Each bonus episode dives into a particular subject that might not have to due with the fundraise or venture capital, but still would be helpful to founders. For example, a bonus episode on brand strategy or how to construct a board of directors. All bonus episodes will be clearly labeled. For all episodes, please visit www.theconsumervc.com.

Episode details

Hey there -

My guest today on The Consumer VC podcast is Monique Woodard, Managing Partner at Cake Ventures. Cake invests in companies that address the needs of a world undergoing massive demographic changes.

Monique describes her three themes (or rather three layers of a cake) as:

  • An aging population

  • Increased spending power of women

  • The changing technology consumption habits

One of the most impactful takeaways from our conversation is how changing demographics can lead to incredible investment opportunities.
