Keynote:
Outperformance and Opportunities: Women Entrepreneurs and Women Investors
Kerry Rupp

When women are on the management team of companies, whether they’re public companies or venture-backed startups, the companies perform significantly better financially. Yet, despite this outperformance, fewer than 3% of companies funded by venture capitalists have a woman CEO. That’s a missed opportunity! So, who best to take advantage of it? Women investors are more likely to outperform — whether they’re money managers, hedge fund managers, or women VCs investing in women entrepreneurs. And by 2030, it’s estimated that U.S. women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation’s wealth. So, we believe they’re a key to changing these poor funding metrics for women entrepreneurs.
__________

Kerry Rupp is a General Partner at True Wealth Ventures, an early-stage venture capital fund investing in women-led businesses in consumer health and sustainable products and technologies.

For over 20 years, she has launched, developed and grown startup companies and new lines of business for established firms. As the prior CEO and General Partner at DreamIt, a Top Ten U.S. startup accelerator and early-stage venture fund, Rupp was directly involved with the launch of over 150 companies. During her five-year tenure with DreamIt, she grew its programs to five cities and raised and managed ~$20M in investment funds including DreamIt Access (minority entrepreneur), DreamIt Athena (female entrepreneur), and DreamIt Health programs.

Before DreamIt, Rupp was the founder of an online travel service, Holiday Golightly, which organized unique group travel excursions for women. She has also advised senior executives at Allrecipes.com, ReadersDigest, LexisNexis, Payscale, and Taleo on strategy, business development and marketing. She held Vice President positions at AllRecipes.com, Jobster, Classmates.com and LexisNexis (and several startups that preceded these). She began her career as a consultant with McKinsey and Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).
She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Biology from Duke University. She serves on the leadership teams of Women@Austin, the Austin chapter of Harvard Business School Alumni Club, and on the board of the Texas 4000 for Cancer. Rupp also mentors at Capital Factory and other startup hubs in Texas and is judge or coach on many local and national start-up competitions (e.g., athenahealth, Harvard Business School, Rice University Business Plan Competition, Energizing Health Houston, Texas Venture Labs, AARP Health Innovation). She is also a nationally-certified instructor for the National Science Foundation’s Innovations Corps (I-Corps) program.

Campus Sponsor:

Espacios Latentes / Latent Spaces is the first solo exhibition of site-specific screen dance works by Ana Baer Carrillo. Site-specific screen dance couples two contemporary dance forms: site specific dance — a choreographic process wherein movement is generated in response to a specific site — and screen dance, a hybridization of cinematography and choreography wherein the relationship between the dancer and the filmmaker constitute an improvisational duet. In her first solo exhibition, Ana Baer Carrillo pushes this medium further, exploring the relationship between sites of origin and their range of re-presentations, whether on a screen, a stage, in an art gallery, or elsewhere.

What to Expect
Experiential and visual rendering of transdisciplinary research as practiced by one of Texas State's most distinguished faculty.

With more than 12 years' experience with ocean conservation groups such as The 5 Gyres Institute and Surfrider Foundation, she has helped organizations including Costa Sunglasses, Klean Kanteen, LUSH Cosmetics, and Whole Foods engage in marine plastics solution initiatives, both internally and with their communities. Prior to working in ocean conservation, Lia worked around the world with premier sports organizations and events, including the PGA TOUR, Ryder Cup, the Super Bowl, and the World Surf League.

Shelia Rogers is a fine art photographer and mixed media artist. Her life's work communicates the complexities and the attractions she finds in her environment.
