Elizabeth Galbut



About Elizabeth

Elizabeth is the Founding Partner of two start-up venture capital firms, SoGal Ventures and A-Level Capital. 

During Elizabeth's graduate studies at Johns Hopkins University & Maryland Institute College of Art, Elizabeth consulted with hundreds of start-ups and identified the lack of pre-seed funding as the major issue preventing these startups from succeeding. To solve this, she co-founded A-Level Capital, the student-led venture capital firm powered by Johns Hopkins students. With a team of 24 student investment team members, A-Level Capital aims to invest in 80 JHU student and young alumni startups in the next five years.

On a mission to create the change she wished to see, Elizabeth and Pocket Sun founded SoGal Ventures, the first female-led millennial venture capital firm, with an investment focus on exceptional, diverse founding teams that have plans for global domination through tackling major consumer or healthcare problems in the U.S. and Asia. SoGal Ventures represents how far our generation has come, and how deep our impact on the world can be.

To further impact positive change, Elizabeth is honored to serve on the Investment Review Committee of the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) Technology Commercialization Fund and the Board of the Heil Luthringer Foundation

Prior to graduate studies, as a Strategy and Operations Consultant at Deloitte Consulting, Elizabeth developed long-term strategy and technology & innovation plans for a variety of large healthcare clients. During her time at Deloitte, Elizabeth contributed to business development efforts leading to over $200M of new work.

Elizabeth is proud alumnus of Georgetown University, London School of Economics, Johns Hopkins University, and Maryland Institute College of Art.
