AUA Private Equity Partners, LLC (“AUA Equity”) is pleased to announce that Managing Partner Andy Unanue has been appointed by the National Association of Investment Companies to serve on the Marathon Foundation’s Venture Capital Access Program Selection Committee. The Venture Capital Access Program (“VCAP©”) is a collaborative venture that provides women and diverse entrepreneurs nationwide with access to venture capital through accredited investors within the Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of Greater New York Network. VCAP© is operated by NAIC’s Marathon Foundation, a business development network dedicated to the professional growth, access to capital and deal flow for diverse entrepreneurs.

The first program of its kind, VCAP© bridges the gap between venture capitalists and angel investor networks and women and diverse entrepreneurs, many of whom have not traditionally had access to these sources of capital. Ed Dandridge, President and Chief Executive Officer of NAIC said,“We are pleased to partner with the Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of Greater New York on VCAP© which will provide women and diverse entrepreneurs with access to capital essential to innovation and job creation. By appointing successful businessmen and entrepreneurs such as Andy Unanue to serve on Marathon’s VCAP© selection committee, we are able to leverage his industry knowledge, entrepreneurial expertise and track record of working with and creating opportunities for multi-cultural entrepreneurs.”

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce & Minority Business Development Agency, between 2002 and 2007, diverse-owned firms outpaced the growth of non-diverse firms in gross receipts and employment. During the same period, paid employment of diverse businesses grew by 24% compared to a decrease in employment of 1.1% for non-diverse firms.

Andy Unanue, Managing Partner of AUA Equity, added “I am honored to have been asked to by the NAIC to join its Marathon Foundation VCAP© selection committee. Having spent my entire career building a multi-cultural and diverse company, I am pleased to be able to work with diverse entrepreneurs to share my experiences and vision for success on this very important initiative.”
