Founding Partner, 1843 Capital
Tracy brings a deep Greenwich network and a wealth of early stage funding knowledge and connections to the Woman Owned Greenwich Steering Committee.
What do you find most challenging about running your business?
Venture Capital has many challenges, but the one that is the most difficult is that I cannot fund all the great founders I meet. There are so many women creating compelling businesses in the technology sector, but I have limited resources in time and capital.
How have you been involved in the Greenwich Community?
I’m a longtime resident of Greenwich with two boys at Brunswick School. I have been lucky to contribute to the school by donations of artwork, a children’s book I wrote for them called “Bruin, the Brunswick Bear” and by coaching the Odyssey of the Mind competition for my son’s 5th grade team. I was a co-chair of the annual Bruce Museum Ball and support many other not-for-profits in town such as the WBDC and Impact Fairfield. I also like to serve as a resource for women in the community building businesses even if they are not venture eligible.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about the next generation of women having access to capital they need to build large and interesting businesses, and not having to worry about unconscious bias.
What drew you to the WOG Steering Committee?
I am excited to connect with more women business owners and create a community of like minded people.
What are your personal hopes for Woman Owned Greenwich?
I hope the network thrives and can be a basis of support for other women as we strive to make women’s businesses grow.
