Linnea Roberts
Founder & CEO @GingerBread Capital
Linnea believes that women-led businesses are changing the world for the better. They’re also really smart investments that are too often overlooked and undervalued by investors. To change that scenario, Linnea launched GingerBread Capital in 2016 to build and invest in women’s entrepreneurial success–-and to encourage other women to do the same. Previously, Linnea enjoyed a 30-year career in investment banking, the latter half as a Partner in the technology sector at Goldman Sachs, where she led many a start-up from launch to IPO. She also served as Goldman’s diversity ambassador to recruit, retain and promote more women into leadership positions with the firm and within the finance industry.
