Create equal opportunities for talented entrepreneurs to innovate, drive economic growth, and build a sustainable world.
As female founders, we have experienced firsthand the unique challenges of raising funding for our startups. In July 2017, we heard numerous stories of females experiencing harassment and discrimination, and we realized something needed to change. We are a group of female founders who came together from around the world with the shared desire of making raising funding more equitable. We want to ensure that anyone, regardless of their race, gender identity, disability, or background, has an equal chance at building their vision.
The result? FairFunders.
We launched - in the midst of the scandals across tech - to give the power back to founders. By allowing founders to share their experiences with a variety of investors via a Glassdoor-like rating system, our hope was to out the bad players and highlight the good.
Soon after, we launched FAVEs: Founder Access to VCs Events, our free, bi-weekly online events that bring founders a new way to connect with investors they would not have had access to otherwise. No warm intros, bro networks, or budgets for investor conferences needed! Recently, we were honored to have FAVE feature 2018 Forbes MIDAS List investor, Mar Hershenson.
The success of FAVE led us to start building a complimentary tool for our loyal community of founders and investors - an evolution of FAVE where we take founders’ access to VCs a step further with a simple platform for pitch deck sharing, feedback, and messaging.
We’re proud to present the platform to you in private beta!
