Amplifyher is a Venture Capital firm that invests in diverse leadership teams with a unique ability to create flywheel effects of growth in new markets.
We are opportunistic investors.
15% of VC dollars go to gender-mixed teams, even though those teams out-perform all-male founding teams by 63%.
We don't see women as under-funded, we see them as untapped.
We want to see more women in the C-Suite.
Women make up one in five C-Suite leaders and less than 5% of CEOs.
Amplifyher arms outstanding women with the resources and capital needed to build their own C-Suites.
And there's no better time to make it happen.
We are at an inflection point in venture for female empowerment.
The conversation of gender parity is at its prime, but the numbers still show a significant gap in financing. Let's change that.
