At a time when women fill just 15% of general partner roles and women receive just 1% of venture investment, women investors must come together to collaborate, learn, and help each other rise. Join us for a monthly Peer Group to create connections among women in venture investing, identify opportunities for collaboration, and provide a personal advisory board to explore the challenges and opportunities we face. Together, we will empower more women to thrive as professional investors and drive more capital toward women-led companies.
