Elizabeth McCluskey, Director of Discovery Fund at CMFG Ventures, joined us on the show to feature one of CMFG's portfolio companies: Home Lending Pal (HLP). Bryan Young, Founder of Home Lending Pal, joined Elizabeth to provide details on HLP's Siri-like, AI-powered home mortgage assistant that helps minorities find homes that fit their budget.
Elizabeth explains that the Discovery Fund was created to support entrepreneurs who are building solutions for financial inclusion. The fund will invest $15M over the next three years in early-stage fintech companies led by BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and women founders.
Both Elizabeth and Bryan share how each organization works together to ensure their success and, more importantly, the success of their end users.
Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
