For the founders who can't be lumped into a classification and don't fit traditional pattern matching. For the investors looking to put their money toward something or someone that speaks to you. For those who identify as underrepresented and struggle to network your way to the people and resources you need to get funded or to invest.

We are building this for you.

VC Dollars are Unevenly Distributed

Investing in diverse founders isn't just the right thing to do, it's the smart thing to do.

The data is shocking and discouraging, but we see opportunity. Research shows that female founders and diverse teams are under-invested and deliver better investment results. This makes them an undervalued asset class and a huge opportunity for the investors who source them.

Diverse teams

3 out of 4 VC rounds go to non-diverse teams

Gender gap

More than 3/4 of all VC deals go to all male teams
