The Arbitrage Opportunity of her Lifetime, and Managing a Global Venture Fund with Elizabeth Galbut, GP at SoGal Ventures
The Consumer VC Episode 128 with Elizabeth Galbut, General Partner at SoGal Ventures
My guest today on podcast is Elizabeth Galbut, one of the founding partners of SoGal Ventures. SoGal Ventures is the first female-led, next generation venture capital firm. Some of their investments include Function of Beauty, Everlywell, Lovevery, and Eterneva.
I particularly enjoyed our discussion about arbitrage opportunities and how she analyzes different geographic markets - Elizabeth lives in the United States while her investment partner, Pocket, lives in Asia.
Some of the topics we discuss:
How she transitioned her career from healthcare to venture capitalist
How she fundraised for SoGal Fund 1
How she makes investment decisions and invests in companies that are located in different parts of the world
What she is most surprised by the Gen Z generation
How she conducts diligence at the early stages
