Why W Fund?

Our team knows two things really well – the tech startup space, and inclusion in that same tech startup space. Both of them need changing, and at many different levels.

The W Fund is structured to make the biggest impact it can on as many of those levels as possible. A few ways we do this:

— Directly investing in outstanding companies led by innovative leaders from underrepresented backgrounds

— Supporting portfolio company diversity and inclusion of employees, workplace, board, advisors and investors

— Establishing VC-in-Residence, carry-holding investment positions to open a path to VC for people who would otherwise not have that access

— Diversifying our own Limited Partners, providing them with investing, operating and leadership skills-building programming, and equipping them to be inclusive in activities outside our fund

We’ve seen firsthand the power of underestimated founders, and we know our next $1B companies will be led by women and underrepresented people. We have a singular focus on fueling a more powerful and representative future for the world, and access to the best-of-the-best.
