Barbara Clarke has become an emerging force on the Boston innovation scene. No less than Flybridge General Partner Jeff Bussgang recognized her as one of a handful of Boston-based Super Angels, having backed 30+ companies in the past five years. A noted economist and community activist, Barbara also co-founded The Impact Seat.  Barbara is a Venture Partner in two Portfolia Funds: The Rising Tide Fund and Portfolia Enterprise Fund.  Of note is Barbara’s deep investment portfolio that includes people of color, which she sees as one of the most attractive growth areas for venture investment.
