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.
