Opportunity

  • People of color and female-owned businesses are underserved by the venture capital community
  • Diversity-led startups deliver superior ROI on less capital than their peers
  • Limited competition for investments – supports attractive valuation

 

  • BCG Consulting Group – Why Women Owned Start Ups are a Better Bet
    • “For every funding dollar, startups founded (or co-founded) by women generate 78 cents, while male-founded startups generate just 31 cents”

Arbitrage Unwarranted Human Bias

  • First Round – female co-founded companies outperformed male co-founded companies by 63%  – measured by valuation
  • Kauffman Foundation – private technology female-led companies are more capital-efficient
    • 35% higher ROI
    • if venture-backed – 12% higher revenue than male-led startups by men
  • BCG – female co-founded businesses deliver higher revenue (more than 2 times dollar invested) than male co-founded
  • Pitchbook – female-led startups are faster to exit – 6.4 years versus an average of 7.4 years

Still…

  • Investment size in female-led companies ($0.94 million) averaged less than half of  male co-founded companies ($2.10 million)
  • Female-led startups were only awarded 2.8% of Venture Capital funding in 2019
