Cayla Weisberg, a familiar face in the Chicago startup community, has built a track record for scaling startups and providing a voice for women in tech. She is focused on sourcing strong female founders with technology-enabled solutions for large markets. Having built a plug-and-play sales roadmap throughout her career, Cayla offers hands-on thought leadership on start-up scaling, pivoting & operational excellence for InvestHER's portfolio companies.
Her enthusiasm for entrepreneurship began young, having launched a concierge shopping business at 17 years old. At 19, she joined forces with a fashion wholesaler, winning the business of national retail conglomerates throughout undergrad. Post grad, she worked for one of Fortune's "100 Fastest-Growing Companies" as assistant director, achieving record-breaking sales performance for three consecutive years. Following this success, she transitioned into the startup ecosystem, leading business development initiatives for two fast-growing tech companies at a venture capital incubator. Weisberg is a partner at InvestHER Ventures, a venture capital fund that partners with and invests in passionate female entrepreneurs with early-stage technology companies. Weisberg partnered with founder Gerri Kahnweiler in 2016 to create InvestHER Ventures to address a common issue for women with startups: few investors are funding them.
