Welcome back for Season 3 of Access and Opportunity. This season, we're exploring how influential investors from across various pools of capital are helping women and multicultural-led businesses to gain access to capital. On today's episode we are talking to Dr. Paul Judge, an entrepreneur and investor who is raising the city of Atlanta's profile as a technology hub by investing in multicultural start-ups. 

In addition to being the serial entrepreneur who started hyper-successful tech companies like Purewire, Luma Home and Pindrop, Dr. Paul Judge is the co-founder of Tech Square Labs, a seed-stage venture fund that has a strong history of investing in entrepreneurs of color. Tech Square Labs finds companies in early development and provides them with the capital and the mentorship that they need to succeed. Today, Paul talks to us about how his success as an entrepreneur has impacted his lens on investing, the importance of seeking the best talent from diverse backgrounds, and what he thinks the investment landscape will look like in the near future.
