Female

Founders

Fund

. . .

An early-stage fund investing in the exponential power of exceptional female talent.

Women make great

entrepreneurs.

Women experience greater successes - and fewer failures - than their male counterparts. Yet traditional venture capital does not reflect this.

Female Founders Fund was founded to change that.

A generation of talented women are building businesses and raising capital to bring their ideas to life.

It's not just about women.

It's about talent.

Portfolio

. . .

Our portfolio companies all share something in common - each is led by talented female founders with disruptive and innovative ideas that better serve their consumer.

Scout Investments

. . .

Female Founders Fund makes small, supporting investments in companies sourced by our Venture Scouts but operating in sectors or stages that are currently outside of our focus on institutional seed-stage opportunities.

Interested in working for one of our fast growing, female-led startups in New York City, Santa Monica, San Francisco, or London?
