More About Women in VC
Origins of this Initiative

Started in New York City in 2015, the women in VC directory was created to enable women investors to connect with each other, inspiring collaboration and a sense of community. The directory quickly expanded to other markets, and is now the world’s largest self reported database of active women investors currently at institutional, corporate funds, or family offices - spanning more than 900+ women across 600+ funds and more than 25 countries. Women in the directory use this database in a variety of ways; such as sharing dealflow to identify prospective co-investors, planning events in their respective cities, connecting with other women on business trips, or recruiting talent for their fund.

To respect individual contact preferences, our global directory is password protected and for women currently in the venture community only.

About this Research
Predominantly Self-Reported
Of the 1,026 profiles analyzed, 86% (or 881 people) shared their own, self-reported data. We collected this information organically through Google and Airtable forms. This data is reviewed quarterly to keep the directory current, removing churn and updating positions or job changes.
Corporate and Institutional VCs Only
While we recognize there are many other investment models, we limited the scope of this study uniquely to women at corporate and institutional VCs, starting at the PreSeed found of financing. Within the private Airtable directory, women investors at family offices are also included.
Layering in Public Data
For the remaining 145 profiles analyzed, we pulled a subset of relevant data from publicly available datasets, and cross referenced the profiles with LinkedIn data to ensure the information was current. These supporting references included: Latina Women in VC, Black Women in VC and the All Raise initiative foundersforchange.org, which powers the Diverse Investor List.
Slight Bias Toward NYC
As we founded this group in New York City, we have reasons to believe there may be a slight bias toward women on the East Coast, which is why we have also made an attempt to backfill any missing data from VC firms in other locations, for purposes of the published research.
