We believe there are enormous untapped opportunities ready to be funded, developed and grown that create value for our investors and impact for the rest of our community.
We do this by selecting the best businesses ideas from the most promising underrepresented founders in North America and helping them develop their business, expand their impact and leave the world a better place than before they launched their dream.
The majority of the fund’s portfolio companies’ founders are women, ethnically diverse, or from other socially disadvantaged groups like immigrants, LGBTQ, physically disabled, dyslexic and learning different. Their unique positions in these communities are their distinct advantage and we believe these kinds of investments will be the next big wave of startup success stories.
We encourage investors who feel as we do to join us to be a part of this next big wave.
We rarely think to mark the trail for others to follow. ‘Live and learn,’ we say, acknowledging the value of experience. We usually forget about ‘Live and teach.’ –Marilyn Ferguson
