The Female Founders Fund is taking leaps to push women-run companies into the too oft boys club of business. Since its inception in 2014, the investment firm has cultivated a community of female-founded companies to buoy one another within the typically male-dominated field. “Our view is that we’re betting on the future and this will only grow over time,” said Anu Duggal, founding partner of Female Founders Fund.
Duggal said the Female Founders Fund was “inspired by the belief that the next wave of successful venture-backed businesses will be led by female founders. The goal was to build a firm that worked with these exceptional female founders at the early stages offering them both capital but more importantly, access to the strongest network of successful female operators and ceo’s in the world.”
