Our Focus Areas
There are not enough female entrepreneurs.

In fact, men made up 59.4% of all new entrepreneurs in 2016*.

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.
