A Gender Lens


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’s mission is to seed and grow strong, female led ventures in the Southeastern, US. Our 80+ investors and fund partners understand that investments in early stage ventures led by women have greater potential to produce higher returns and are historically underfunded.  This is particularly true in the Southeast where less than 6% of venture capital is directed towards female-led companies and less than 15% nationally.
