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%.

    As value-investors, 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.

    The time is now.

    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.


    Our team's operating and investment experience will be of greatest value to founders in these three areas:


    Identifiable brands with data-driven market opportunities and competitive logistics.


    Tech-enabled innovations that yield greater efficiencies in consumer health, hospital infrastructure, and everyday living.


    Groundbreaking platforms and tools that enhance the expression, distribution and monetization of information.
