Women Investing in Women.
Our vision is to establish the Southeast as the nation's best place for a woman to invest in or grow a business.
In 2013, we recognized a huge opportunity:
Less than 3% of venture capital in the Southeast U.S. is allocated toward women-led companies. Yet, companies with at least one female founder on their team perform 63% better than all-male founded teams (First Round Capital, 2015).
We also realized that women's capital was not being fully activated in the Southeast, which is why we only accepted investment from woman investors for our first fund.
Women now represent over 20% of all angel investors (Angel Capital Association).
Our companies are headquartered in Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Virginia.
All of our portfolio companies share two things in common—each are led by aspirational women entrepreneurs and founded in the Southeast.
The JumpFund is lead by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs, experienced investors and industry veterans in finance, business management, education and philanthropy.
