Founder & CEO of Audacity Assets

Named a “Finance Whiz” by Business Insider, Erikan is on a mission to reimagine the next 100 years.

She is the Founder and CEO of Audacity Assets, a global venture firm that seeds undervalued assets across emerging economies. At Audacity, Erikan is the Founder and General Partner of Enterprise Africa, an early-stage venture fund that co-invests with Fortune 500 companies across Africa.

By age 30, Erikan built an early-stage startup advisory and investment portfolio valued at over $7B. In 2021, she became the first black woman to found a tokenized venture capital fund and broke records by selling $1M worth of digital art in 1 minute.

Before Audacity, Erikan was a top sales leader at Microsoft’s Linkedin. She sold Sales Navigator to asset managers on Wall Street and across Silicon Valley. Her contributions lent to Sales Navigator crossing $1B in ARR.

She’s a 2013 alum of Claremont McKenna College and serves on the board of the Kravis Leadership Institute (KLI).

In her free time, Erikan is an “artist in finance”. She plays the harp, dances underwater, produces films, and is a TED speaker.
