They say, "you can't be what you can't see."
Pique Ventures is changing that by enabling greater equity and inclusion in the venture capital industry.
Your support means a lot to me. Learn more about Pique's vision and please support my campaign:https://www.gofundme.com/he...
- Only 2.2% of venture capital went to women-led companies.
- Less than 15% of venture capital partners - the people making the investment decisions - are women.
- Women hold only 9% of startup equity.
At Pique Ventures, we changed the ratio. With our first fund, we invested in 7 women-founded tech ventures in Vancouver with the backing of 41 investors - 32 of which are women, representing 75% of the capital. Around a third of our investors identify as people of colour.
Looking at all the members of the management teams of our portfolio companies, 42% are women (more than 3 times better than the industry average of 13%). 26% are people of colour.
Pique has inspired others to invest in and with impact. We’ve helped and championed entrepreneurs through big changes, tough decisions, and success on their terms. It’s through Pique’s business model that I’m able to provide help and advice to people who don’t have the resources nor experience yet.
Please help me help more women and underrepresented entrepreneurs. https://www.gofundme.com/he...
