The question often comes up from our readers: “Who are the women who invest in women?” Data about this is hard to come by. However, we have been following lists, blogs and databases for a few months now to collect that information. The data is very messy for many reasons, including the fact that it is constantly evolving. Women change companies, and some women angel investors are under the radar screen. Furthermore, women investors generally do not invest solely in female founded companies (except for organizations like Golden Seeds). All that being said, we decided to forge forward and make a database of women who are professional investors.
In our research we uncovered over 500 women who are professional and active investors from all stages. We did our best to present what we found from public data sources, however, we take no responsibility for the accuracy of the data we used from those sources. We created the digital database of female investors which is presented here. We uploaded a handful of the women investors so we could test the user interface and see how the database performs. We are no where near complete on this, but we thought we would still share it with our community and ask for your help identifying the women who should be included here. In a way, this is a crowd sourced database of women investors, many of whom have invested in female founded companies.
Please help us by filling out the form to include yourself or anyone you think would be appropriate. The best way to help promote women entrepreneurs and technology is to promote the women who can help them grow.
