Female-Led Venture Capital Funds
Venture capital has remained largely male-dominated because only 9 percent of Venture Capital investors are women, the majority of whom are working to bring outstanding ideas for female-led startups .
Gender Investment Gap
- Recent reports hold that there were 114 percent more female-owned businesses in 2017 than two decades before with the number of black female-led startups doubling between 2016 and 2018.
- Research by Axios stated that women account for only 9 percent of investors through U. S. VC firms. Because female entrepreneurship is progressing at a fast rate, women are still not receiving much venture capital funding.
- Female entrepreneurs are still thriving. A study by BCG discovered that while firms endowed by women received only 1/2 the investment, they thus produce double the amount of funds than their male equals. This is great news for successful female investors.

Sutian Dong and Anu Duggal – Female Founders Fund
Research has shown that female founders achieve greater than their male equals, but traditional Venture Capital does not reveal this fact; Anu Duggal founded Female Founders Funds to disrupt the sequence because the platform funds impact female-led startups.
