It would be a gross understatement to say that Pocket Sun has been keeping busy. Her one-year‑old female-led venture capital firm, SoGal Ventures, has grown to influence more than 50,000 female entrepreneurs in over 30 countries. It is not even the 26-year-old’s first time being recognised for her vision— LinkedIn did so in its Top Voices 2015 list for her work in empowering female innovators through investment. “The fact that only 5 per cent of the people in the venture capital industry are women is a sad fact and we believe that we are the right people to change things up,” she says. The eloquent businesswoman is also an ardent advocate of sex education. “It should be mandatory for everyone!”
