Gender Lens Investing
When The JumpFund first launched, we knew a few things:
Women-led growth ventures were not getting the same attention or funding as their male counterparts.
The lack of early-stage investment in women created a huge, untapped opportunity for angel investors.
Women's capital was not being engaged in the high risk, high reward world of angel investing.
The JumpFund was recently included among 58 private equity, venture and debt funds investing through a "gender lens" in the first global scan conducted by the Wharton School's Social Impact Initiative. Project Sage highlights investors and fund managers who identify as gender lens investors with a focus on increasing women’s access to capital, developing products or services for and by women, or increasing women’s presence and value whether as entrepreneurs, co-founders, leaders, employees, or customers in the value chain.
