Ashlee Ammons, who is the co-founder of Mixtroz, along with her
mother Kerry Schrader, who is also a co-founder of the company,
each became one of 40 black female founders ever to raise $1M or
more in investor capital. According to Forbes, less than 6% of
venture capital goes to women founders.
And if you haven't listened to my interview with Ashlee, I
would highly recommend you check it out. It's Episode 2 of Season
1. Ashlee has a very interesting story, including being the first
intern to Lebron James, then later working with many other
celebrities including Leonardo Dicaprio, Oprah, and Jay-Z, among
others, prior to co-founding Mixtroz with her mom in 2014.
