We invest in and support female founders to help bridge the massive global gap in financing for gender equity.
Why we invest in female founders
A recent study by Boston Consulting Group evaluated 350 companies and concluded that female-run startups generated 78 cents of revenue per $1 of investment, compared to $31 cents generated by male-run startups.
First Round Capital concluded that their female-run investments performed 63% better than startups with male-only founding teams.
Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation found that female-led teams generate a 35% higher return on investment than all-male teams.
Female founders are less likely to be motivated purely by financial gains, making them more likely to have a long-term view when it comes to decision making.
Female-led teams are more likely to prioritise Corporate Social Responsibility.
There is a strong and statistically significant correlation between the diversity of management teams and innovation.
