#17 - Underestimated founders = outsized returns: Claire Diaz-Ortiz, Magma Partners

Listen On

Stop fishing in the sludge. There's a lot more healthy fish where people don't go as often. And while some investors care too much about other investors' signals and might see particular markets as small ponds, Claire Diaz-Ortiz uses that as an advantage by searching for overlooked big opportunities.

Claire is a VC, angel investor, author, and speaker who was an early employee at Twitter. Named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company and called “The Woman Who Got the Pope on Twitter” by Wired, she joined Magma Partners in 2020 as an investing partner in Latin America. There, she runs Brava, the first initiative of its kind to invest in female founders across the region.

In this episode:

  • Her journey at Twitter until she became a VC
  • The dynamics of leverage and signaling
  • Ideas to shockwave change towards investments in underrepresented founders
  • And tips to get the right investor's attention
