In 2020, she launched MADRE VENTURES which provides investment capital and strategic support to early-stage and mid-cap enterprises that are solving significant social, environmental and technological challenges – profitably. The fund’s central thesis is, “What would it look like to help one billion people?” and it seeks to support that thesis through the verticals of green energy, mindful technology and social justice.
In addition to MADRE VENTURES, Laura is the co-founder and CEO of AG Capital, a fund that focuses on the advancement of culture by way of world-class creators, impactful storytelling and unique live events. Founded in 2015 AG Capital has financed projects for Brad Pitt and Plan B (MOONLIGHT, WORLD WAR Z, 12 YEARS A SLAVE), Rob Siegel (THE WRESTLER, THE FOUNDER), Beau Willimon (HOUSE OF CARDS) amongst others.
Prior to all of this, Laura was a film finance agent at Creative Artists Agency. From 2007-2014, which was a pivotal time for a burgeoning class of independent financiers, she had the privilege of representing and structuring deals for a bastion of funds; among them were companies like Annapurna, 2929 Entertainment, Silver Reel Entertainment and FilmNation.
