Hi everyone! I’m Claire Diaz-Ortiz, an investing partner at Magma Partners, Latin America's leading early stage venture capital fund and head of Brava, the first initiative of its kind to invest in female founders across Latin America. I also started the angel collective, a group of female investors who co-invest in female founders across borders. Prior to investing full-time, I was an early employee at Twitter. I am the author of 9 books that have been translated into ten languages, including One Minute Mentoring, Social Media Success for Every Brand, and Twitter for Good. My next book is about female founders and funders, and I’m writing it with my friend and awesome investor Sophia Bendz. I write a newsletter at ClaireDiazOrtiz.com, where 15K people have been reading some really random stuff for 15 years. I have an MBA from Oxford University and a BA and MA from Stanford University in History, Feminist Studies, and Anthropology. I have three young kids and live in Argentina. I’m from Berkeley, I never miss an episode of the real housewives (any city), and I read 126 books in 2020 because I have no discernible hobbies of which to speak. Ask me anything about writing, investing, diversity in entrepreneurship, parenting, operating, public speaking, angel investing, or anything else!
