More women became VC partners than ever before in 2019
  • 2020 is here and the numbers are in: 2019 was a historic year not only for funding to female-founded companies and new female-founded unicorns, but also for women in VC.
  • According to our analysis of U.S. venture capital firms with over $25M AUM (excluding life science and corporate VC firms), in 2019 52 women became VC partners or general partners for the first time.
  • This figure is unprecedented: it represents the highest number of new female VC partners and a 37% increase from last year’s record (38).
