Good Soil VC
Charmaine Hayden is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Before entering the world of Venture Capital as one of the only Women of colour in VC in the UK to be a managing partner she was no stranger to kicking down diversity doors. By the time Good Soil was founded Charmaine had already built 2 incredibly popular diversity brands (5x award winning ethnic/curve model agency - Face4music and Goal Digger power circle - a hub for female entrepreneurs) before many people were even thinking about braving the “diversity” conversation. She credited her thick skin and solution focused attitude to her tough upbringing. Charmaine Hayden
