Founder/ CEO, Pantegrion Capital

Alicia Syrett thrives investing in highgrowth, high-risk and high-return industries. She loves working with entrepreneurs in the early stages of business. If those entrepreneurs are women, all the better. Syrett knows the highrisk, high-return entrepreneurial world first-hand. She was the first employee and managing director in what grew into a multibillion dollar private equity firm. “I was responsible for doing anything and everything to get the firm up and running,” she says.
