The Team

Inessa Obenhuber: 

"I am an Angel investor and a business advisor who has years of experience working with companies involved in high technology and healthcare. I bring with me a wealth of experience having started multiple business, spent years as an angel investor, and served on numerous boards of directors. I've been a lot of things in life: an immigrant, a business founder, a single mother, an investor, and at times the "only woman in the room." Today, I help entrepreneurs get in touch with investors as well as coach to become investors themselves. My goal is to help guide women and minorities break into business roles where they are sadly underrepresented. I teach the fundamentals of investing and show people how they can become a successful venture investor."
