NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, September 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Fast Company Impact Council has brought on Laura Walker Lee, Founder and CEO of Madre Ventures, to join their invitation-only collective of the most inventive founders, energetic CEOs, designers and artists, and visionaries—coming together to share knowledge, ideas, and perspectives on business, society, innovation, and design. The council appointment continues her work of impacting one billion individuals through global ventures in clean energy, mindful technology, and social wellness.
Laura Walker Lee joins the council as a globally-minded strategist who has successfully worked at the intersection of culture and finance for over fifteen years. At present, Walker Lee runs Madre Ventures, which sources investment capital and provides strategic support to mid/late-stage enterprises that are solving significant social, environmental and technological challenges – profitably. Madre’s central thesis is, “What would it look like to help one billion people?” Madre seeks to support that thesis through the verticals of clean energy, mindful technology, and social wellness. Additionally, Walker Lee runs AG Capital, a family office that focuses on the advancement of culture by way of world-class creators, impactful storytelling, and unique live events.

Together, we can create new opportunities for founders who are leading paradigm-shifting ventures that shape our collective futures.
