Recognizing women on the frontlines
fighting the pandemic spread
Women are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic on the frontlines. Shatter Fund had a dozen women-led companies working to honor their sacrifice with care packages they richly deserve. Nominations are closed. Awardees will be announced May 6.
Women received just a fraction of the venture capital available to grow and scale — pre-COVID-19
Shatter Fund surveyed its 40+ portfolio companies and network partners in recent weeks to find out how things have shifted, and found more than half of these companies have seen a decrease in available capital.
There’s never been a more important time to step up and redouble investments in women entrepreneurs, and Shatter Fund’s commitment is unwavering.
Shatter Fund is boldly redefining lifestyle - empowering companies with women leaders to transform their lives and their communities.
We seek out companies that Break Big. Break Big means redefining the rules. Break Big is about pushing past the limits of the possible.
We have powerful partners and advisors working along-side women-led firms to break big.
Historically, companies with female founders performed 66% better than those with all male-founders.
That is why the Shatter Fund exclusively invests in high potential disruptive technology companies led by female entrepreneurs.
It's in the data.
Drive returns for investors as the premier investment fund for women entrepreneurs
Drive new economic growth and spur innovation
Close the gender gap by providing the go-to funding opportunity for female entrepreneurs
Legacy industries such as Healthcare, Education and Finance, where women are the majority of the workforce and largely the end-customer are ripe for disruption. We are actively seeking women entrepreneurs who want to scale their innovative companies in these spaces. And, we are seeking women led technology companies in general.
Women should be building solutions “for” women. Many issues that concern millions of women still lack innovative solutions because women fight an uphill battle as entrepreneurs.*2016 Kauffman Index of Startup Activity
