Funding the Future

Investing in the exponential power of exceptional female talent.

We are Disrupting the Status Quo


Fact: Women make better entrepreneurs. Companies with female founders perform 63% better than those of their
male peers.


But women aren’t getting any funding. Only 2.7% of venture capital dollars went towards female-founded companies in 2019.


We’re here to change that.
Since 2014, we’ve invested in category-defining female leaders with a strong community to fuel their success.

Where we Invest

We invest in women building category defining businesses. Each exceptional leader we work with is motivated by a point of view to challenge, shape, and redefine their market.

Climate Tech

We see an opportunity to identify and partner with companies that are innovating in key verticals such as consumerization of energy, digitization of EV infrastructure, commercial decarbonization, circular economy, and sustainable supply chains, and more.


We actively invest in companies disrupting the healthcare experience and innovating on existing care-driven models, particularly with preventative care delivery models alongside traditional treatment methods.

Beauty & Personal Care

We are particularly interested in science-led innovation in beauty investing, focusing on research-backed products vs. brand-oriented solutions.

Vertical Software Solutions

We are interested in opportunities in vertical enterprise software offerings, targeting underserved industries such as transportation, supply chain, and waste management, and more.

Generative AI & Emerging Tech

The consumerization of AI in particular presents opportunities for innovation across sectors like healthcare, climate tech, enterprise SaaS and more.
