Janice Omadeke: It's 'bittersweet' to join small club of Black female founders who've raised more than $1M - Link

- Austin Inno’s Brent Wistrom

“What Janice Omadeke started a few years ago with a PDF and a dream has evolved into a business at the forefront of diversity in tech and one of fewer than 100 startups led by Black women to raise more than $1 million in venture capital funding.
The Mentor Method, which uses a proprietary algorithm to match corporate mentors and mentees, hit that milestone this week by raising a $1.4 million seed round led by several high-profile investors, including Tim Draper's Draper Associates, Elsewhere Partners founder Chris Pacitti and Backstage Capital, founded by Arlan Hamilton. Others in on the deal included Alumni Ventures Group, MATH Venture Partners and Sorenson Impact Fund." - Austin Inno’s Brent Wistrom

- Crunchbase News' Christine Hall

QED Investors led the round with participation from new investors including Backstage Capital, Green Book Ventures, Harbert Growth Partners and How Women Invest, as well as a group of individuals, including Guy Fieri and Jean Case. The new funding gives the company approximately $30 million in total investments to date." - Crunchbase News' Christine Hall
