OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to improve the presence and success of women, minorities, and international founders in the venture-backed tech ecosystem.

HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED

Our team of empathic and diverse entrepreneurs came together with a common idea and mission. If change makers and advocates combine their strengths and focus this energy to fight inequality, then ANYTHING is possible…

 74 % of U.S. VC firms have ZERO female investors

 Female founders received 2.2% of the $130 billion in VC money invested in 2018

Female founders of color received less than 1% of total VC funding in 2018

 THE PROBLEM

funding, face discrimination,

Accelerate and empower entrepreneurs by providing a powerful network of allies and supporters, comprehensive services and direct access to investors and capital.
