Theresa Boyd – Adventures in Venture Capital
Theresa Boyd

Theresa Boyd is a Principal in the Private Markets division of Invesco Ltd., where she constructs portfolios of venture capital funds for mainly institutional clients. Originally from Canada, she went to business school in the UK and now lives and works in the US.

Our conversation digs into the mindset required to select and build a portfolio of venture capital funds, and what this teaches one about risk, loss and innovation. We explore what it is that she loves about the world of private equity and venture capital, and why diversity in this area still needs a lot of work, and not just on the investment side of the equation, as tech itself has some notable shortcomings in this area too.
