Jesse Draper's credentials include being a former Nickelodeon star and the creator and host of the Emmy-nominated talk show The Valley Girl Show. She also happens to be a fourth-generation venture capitalist. In 2017, Draper -- great-granddaughter of VC pioneer General William Draper, granddaughter of Bill Draper III, and daughter of Tim Draper -- raised $10.4 million for Halogen Ventures, which invests in female founders in consumer technology. For Draper's commitment, she also demands one in return: that eventually, these entrepreneurs will also invest in other female founders. Draper's early investments include direct-to-consumer window coverings company Barn and Willow; Werk, a platform and marketplace for those seeking flexible work; and online logistics company Shipsi. The fund has also had at least four exits: Eloquii, Laurel & Wolf, Vida, and Clover.
