Charmaine Hayden
VC Partner at Good Soil Venture Capital


Charmaine Hayden is certainly a force to be reckoned with. She is one of the only women of colour at Partner level in VC in the UK and only a very small handful in the world. She sees the lack of black women investors as a direct correlation to the disproportionate levels of investment accessed by those groups and one of the core reasons for becoming a partner at Good Soil VC.

Good Soil VC fund is a VC firm dedicated to using diversity as a tool for high returns whilst working to minimise funding disparities in tech by investing in startups with high growth potential whose founders are of women, people of colour, LGBT or otherwise disenfranchised groups.
