Diversity Equity & Inclusion 5: Daryn Dodson – Training and Action at Illumen Capital (EP.168)

Diversity Equity & Inclusion 5:  Daryn Dodson – Training and Action at Illumen Capital (EP.168)

Brought to you by: Coinbase Prime, Canalyst, and iConnections |

Daryn Dodson is the founder of Illumen Capital, a venture fund of funds that seeks to invest in the best impact fund managers and takes them through a process to reduce implicit bias in their business and investing decisions.

Our conversation covers Daryn’s early experience with discrimination, work backing more than 1,000 entrepreneurs in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, Board work at impact-focused Calvert Funds, and launch of Illumen.  We discuss Illumen’s three pillars of academic research, investing in the thesis, and training managers across hiring, investing and Board selection – all with the aspiration to become better investors and take advantage of a huge inefficiency in capital allocation.

Please enjoy, my conversation with Daryn Dodson of Illumen Capital in this continuation of our mini-series on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
