Why are we here?


Did you know that female founders received just 2.7% of all venture capital investment in 2019? Being higher than ever before, that was billed as a win. In 2020 the percentage of venture capital invested in women fell back to pre-2017 levels. Diversity might be a hot topic, but the numbers tell a much bleaker story.

Our mission is to change that. We believe that supporting female founders has a profound positive impact on global health and global economies. With a strong track record of stimulating investment into health and life sciences companies, we are putting our expertise towards improving investment, mentorship and business partnerships for women in these sectors.
