We are a women-founded, women-led group that empowers, educates, and equalizes opportunity for women, BIPOC, and non-binary founders.
  • We know that less than 5% of venture capital funding is awarded to women founders, let alone BIPOC or non-binary founders. WE WANT TO CHANGE THIS! 
  • We know in 2017 that there were 114% more women-owned businesses than in the past 20 years.
  • We know the number of black-women-led-startups has more than doubled between 2016 and 2018.We know women founders have a higher ROI than male founders.
Let's work together to set the stage for womxn to fundraise successfully!
