“We’ve made a commitment to have fifty-percent-plus women or minorities on our staff going forward,” Kevin Callahan, founding partner of start-up Chicago-based Fairway Capital Management, told PECN this week.
And the firm is off to a good start. Three of its five founding partners are women–Lauren Bozzelli, Laura Milligan and Kathy Wanner. So is its first analyst hire, said Callahan (pictured). PECN first reported on the launch of the firm, which plans to back U.S. venture capital and growth equity funds on behalf of investors, earlier this month.
