What is the most important criteria?
We are looking to invest in businesses that are owned, led or
influenced by women.
Specifically, we are looking for:
Experienced teams with a strong preference for women in leadership positions;
Large, growing markets;
Capital efficient models;
Strong potential for return.
We make initial investments at the Pre-Series A to Series A stage. We need to see demonstrated proof of concept, established product market fit and prefer revenue-generating companies seeking capital to accelerate their growth. We will make follow-on investments in our portfolio companies on a deal-by-deal basis.
We are sector agnostic and will look at all interesting businesses with the exclusion of real estate and infrastructure. We are excited about evaluating companies that can include technology or innovation in their products or services.
