Your dreams are not too crazy, your ambition is not too big, and your perceived limitations can show themselves out.
We must begin to honor our dreams and ambitions, and to see ourselves as being capable of stepping out as the founders, CEOs, visionaries, investors, board members, and creators this world needs. As we do so, we will unapologetically cultivate a new sense of freedom and empowerment for both ourselves and the next generation.
As powerful as passion, dreams, and energy are, they don’t fund anything. Dr. DeWitt desires to bring the power of wealth to the ambitions of those who lack access to funding. She is especially passionate about providing venture capital for women and people of color, two demographics notoriously underfunded in the traditional lending world.
In addition, there are hundreds of young people without the resources or support to act on their dreams, another reality that has fueled Dr. DeWitt’s decision to become an investor herself.
Dr. DeWitt is passionate about providing leadership development and entrepreneurial training for young women. With the GEMs program, she’s provided both local and international programming across the United States; in London, England; and Johannesburg, South Africa in order to build entrepreneurial mindsets and tech skills, broaden emotional intelligence and leadership skills, and provide exposure to new career pathways.
Rather than waiting until they reach adulthood to finally give themselves permission to follow their dreams, Dr. DeWitt is seeking to empower and embolden young women from an early age.
