The Back Room

A private club for women-led startups to connect with a pool of potential funders, including individual angels and fund managers, and for funders to connect with each other, with founders and individuals interested in becoming limited partners.

Our Goal

To create a new way to bring women founders, investors and funds together for mutual benefit. More women writing checks means more women founders getting funded. Few women in venture and private equity have check writing-power, and those who do need improved access to capital and limited partners. Additionally, too few women are angel investing or venture investing. 

The Bottom Line

The world needs more women to write checks of all sizes – as angels, as limited partners, and as fund managers – because women invest differently than men, and that difference will unlock a missed opportunity worth trillions of dollars.
