On April 20, 2021, Catch&Release announced it raised $14M in Series A funding, led by San Francisco-based venture capital firm Accel. This brings its total funding raised to just over $26M since its founding in 2014 by Analisa Goodin. As an early investor, we were excited not only by the start-up's potential to transform the way advertising gets made, but also by the vision and creativity of its founder.
More than any year in memory, 2020 has strengthened our resolve to stay true to our mission. To hold ourselves accountable to support more founders of color, especially those in the Black and Latinx communities. And to continue investing in female founders whose businesses are poised to change the world for the better.
