500 Women is funding female founders. Powered by @500Startups

In the last 4 years, 500 Startups has invested in over 100 women-founded companies. We're proud to call leaders like Victoria Ransom (Wildfire), Rashmi Sinha (SlideShare), Wendy Tan White (Moonfruit), Leah Busque (TaskRabbit), Jiwon Moon (ViKi), Julie Wainwright (TheRealReal), Prerna Gupta (Khu.sh), and Jennifer Goldfarb (ipsy) #500STRONG.

That's why we're launching the 500 Women Syndicate - to double down on strong women-led companies in the 500 portfolio, AND to enable investors (women AND men) to co-invest in these companies.

Over the next 12 months, 500 Women will invest $1M into 10 companies in the 500 portfolio that have women founders. To be eligible for 500 Women, the company must have at least 1 woman founder who holds minimum 10% ownership of the company. 500 will invest $50-100K per company (our standard investment amount) and aim to syndicate anywhere from $250-500K per company to the syndicate backers.
