Sofia Fund Surpasses Investor Goals

Today marks a significant achievement in bringing new monies into early stage companies. The Sofia Fund, which invests in women-led, growth companies and is led by a group of experienced investors, has tapped into an investor community passionate about Sofia’s mission. Investors have responded positively, and voted with their dollars to be a part of the fund. The Sofia Fund II is now closed to investors, oversubscribed, with a total of $5.5M.

“Angel investing is usually a long-term commitment with an opportunity to positively impact an early-stage company’s growth. Having an experienced fund management team that is serving a segment we are passionate about and stimulating innovation, led us to invest in the Sofia Fund”, said Ed and Val Spencer, long time early stage investors in their community.

The fund’s management team includes Cathy Connett, Lisa Crump, Joy Lindsay, Barb Stinnett, and Dee Thibodeau. All have been angel investors for decades, and are completely committed in unique and individual ways in the early stage company market space: as board members, mentors, connectors, leaders, and investors throughout the US.

Brigid Bonner, VP of Customer Experience and Marketing at CaringBridge commented, “Great ideas come from everywhere and the world has not fully benefited from innovation stemming from women-based businesses. The Sofia Fund is a leader in changing that. I believe this is a unique investment opportunity and an excellent way to experience angel investing.”

Sofia has already made its first investment in April, 2015 in a women led firm based in Minneapolis, Kidizen, who has experienced explosive growth during the past year. The Sofia Fund has invested financially and also holds a seat on Kidizen’s board, working with its management team to advise on growth and scale.

”It was a quick yes for me to invest with the Sofia Fund, as I have worked with this dynamic team in the past”, said Mary Blegen, an executive at US Bank. “Thanks to the Sofia leadership team I have learned about angel investing and have the opportunity to link my passion for helping women succeed with diversifying my portfolio.”
