Monique Villa of Mucker Capital recently wrote a piece for TechCrunch encouraging venture capital investors to take off their Silicon Valley blinders and start thinking about America as their biggest investment opportunity.

Some highlights from her piece:

  • Innovators need to be close to their customers, so they can figure out how best to serve them.
  • VC dollars will flow toward companies that fuel America’s future.
  • Customers are more informed than ever in a post-pandemic world, demanding more transparency about company culture, supply chains, and ownership.

(Mucker Capital’s website header says, “Not in Silicon Valley? Not a problem,” so you know Monique is putting her money where her mouth is.)

She ends her piece with a call to action for VCs, saying, “It is up to investors to capture this opportunity in the next decade. In fact, it is our job.”
