The Business of Travel

Welcome to GBTA's official podcast covering all things business travel!

Jul 7, 2023

This GBTA WINiT podcast explores the transformative impact of female angel investors in the startup ecosystem. In this episode, we speak with Cara Whitehill, advisor, and angel investor at her firm, Unlock Advisors, where she has taken early-stage startups from 0-1 and larger organizations from $10m-$100m+ in revenue growth. We’ll discuss the journey - including her roots in the travel industry – that got her to angel investing. We also delve into the untapped potential and value that women bring to the world of angel investing, and how to support women founders as they innovate with their own ventures.
