About Me

What led me to venture capital and women’s entrepreneurship? Years of work focused on helping underrepresented entrepreneurs find their voices and including them at the table, underscored by my expertise in entrepreneurship and investing.

Since 2007, I’ve been scaling organizations to massive success, beginning with a pharmaceutical startup that we grew to over $100 million in 4 years.

In 2017, I began galvanizing unstoppable female founders by launching one of Atlanta’s most dynamic and diverse communities for women, The Women Only Experience (WOE).

As Head of Investor Relations in a FinTech company, I’ve raised capital.

As Board Chair for Zane Access and Partner at Zane Venture Fund, I helped bridge the gap between Seed and Series A for underrepresented founders building tech-enabled solutions in the Southeast.

I run screening and due diligence for a globally-recognized angel investor group and mentor startups at the nation’s 4th largest tech hub, Atlanta Tech Village.

My story and powerful conversations with the women and allies impacting the flow of capital can be found on my podcast, She Conquers Capital.

These experiences earned me the distinction of being named an Atlanta Startup Wonder Woman by Hypepotamus.

But that's not where it started...

But that's not where it started...

My personal journey has been one of claiming all facets of my voice - including being Latina, a mom, an entrepreneur, a dancer, and a math whiz - even when others were determined to keep me quiet and small. My life's work is empowering others, like you, to do the same.

"... she will exceed your expectations."

Stefanie Diaz was a guest speaker in my evening MBA class. She spoke about how to obtain venture financing.  This is an area that I’ve been teaching and researching for years! I was so impressed with Stefanie. Not only does she have a deep understanding of the venture finance process, but she also has current, up to date knowledge. The field changes quickly, and so it’s important to stay up to date.

Even more, Stefanie communicated her message clearly to my students. Transmitting her expertise to the students in a way that was approachable even to novice entrepreneurs. If you are considering hiring Stefanie as a guest speaker or as a consultant, rest assured that she will exceed your expectations.

"... a true asset to our cohort."

Stefanie's savviness within the investor space, coupled with her anecdotes as a Mother, diverse and female founder, have all proven to be a true asset to our cohorts.

The first time I sought out Diaz, it was due to her background as a thought leader and role as an Advisor to the ATV community. I asked her to come back for future engagements because of the reliability and genuine engagement she offered our founders. Her session is always a favorite!

"$75,000 of growth in the past year for our business..."

What Stefanie worked with me on goes WAY beyond finding fulfillment in my career and growing my email list….it has translated to over $75,000 of growth in the past year for our business, with the potential for so much more in the year to come.  If you’re feeling stuck in your life or business, or just unsure of where you should go next or overwhelmed with what projects to tackle next, Stefanie is the one you need to call. She obviously cares just as much about our business as I do, and she puts every ounce of passion and experience that she has into helping you grow.

"The confidence I needed to execute a flawless and profitable conference for 150 attendees..."

Working with Stefanie taught me more than I could have imagined. She taught me how to market my event and to really determine my target market, my why, and who I am trying to get to my event. All of the elements gave me the confidence I needed to execute a flawless event for 150 attendees. I am now on my third event and each one has grown exponentially.

- Gabrielle D'auria, Community Builder and Founder of the Wellscene ATL Conference

"In two months, my business has vaulted forward and grown more than it has in the last three years!"

"Over the past 3 years, I’ve invested thousands on programs and coaching, but none of them have provided the step by step process and quality of content like Reveal Your Voice has.

The value I have received far exceeds not only my past experiences, but my expectations when I first signed up. Stefanie speaks to everything I have been struggling with in my business: clarity of my message, content creation and next steps to get it out to the women who are waiting for my help/message. Her coaching and business expertise is offered in a way that I know she has walked in the shoes I've been clomping around in. 

When I share with her my challenges around getting my voice and program 'out there',  I am blown away by the precision in which Stefanie's intuition nails the solution I need.
