Who This Is Programme For:
We will invest in early stage women-founded companies, led by founders who are diverse, or underrepresented women entrepreneurs.
Investing in women-founded companies working and measuring impact
on at least 1 SDG.
We only invest in companies founded or co-founded by diverse, underrepresented women entrepreneurs who are working to solve one of the 17 SDGs. Because we believe that women entrepreneurs identify and solve different problems for their communities, that often get overlooked by conventional investors and VCs. And working on the SDGs is the only way to build forward better together post Covid-19, to create sustainable businesses for today and to create transferable generational wealth. To create opportunities so that diverse and underrepresented women entrepreneurs will be overlooked no more. It is possible to do good for people and planet while creating sustainable businesses.
If you are currently looking for funding, please indicate in your answers. If not currently fundraising, it will still be a great way for you to be visible to customers and investors for the future.

Why focus only on women entrepreneurs?
Because we believe that women entrepreneurs are the greatest untapped catalyst to re-ignite the global economy. Til now, they've only gotten 2% of venture funding and only 14-20% of business angels to date are women. We are on a mission to fight the bias and show that funding women entrepreneurs is a fantastic way for investors to get greater financial returns, grow sustainable businesses and grow economies.
what do you mean by Diverse, Underrepresented?
Our definition of diversity is 100% inclusive - we will fund women entrepreneurs who are black, brown, indigenous, from the LGBTQ+ communities, living with disability, from different cultures and age groups. 'Underrepresented' to us, means founders who have been chronically overlooked for funding for too long, who identify and solve specific problems for communities that are often hidden from classical investors point of view.
