*Gender Balanced Teams
as way to drive performance
The game is changing
Gender equality is fueling discussions everywhere.
General awareness is everything - and yes, it’s happening. And yet we say: it’s not enough.
We need more female founders
More gender-balanced teams. Why? They overperform, that’s why. Yes: companies with +30% women in their founding team are 2.5x more profitable. Because they’re bold. They beat adversity. They shake up conventions. They summon the future to challenge the present.
The time has come for the SistaFund.
We’re taking a stand - answering female entrepreneurs’ calls everywhere. We’re taking action - raising the first pan-European 100m€ VC fund dedicated to supporting companies founded by women and gender-balanced teams. We’re partnering with them, in France, Europe and the U.S.From 0 to 1. And millions.
We are the new generation of venture capital founders
Together, we have created a community of exceptional and committed talents : entrepreneurs, partners, best-in-class experts. Together, we will challenge the status quo. Together, we will knock down yesterday’s biases - reshaping the world in 4 key areas: Healthcare, Fintech, Sustainability, and Frontier Tech.
Women don’t need to be shown the way, they need to be given resources
Our purpose is to help write new stories and create value - simply. Their vision will be our gender-balanced horizon.
Our legacy will be Equality
We are a new generation of venture capital funders backing exceptional female founders and gender-balanced teams
Hands on partners
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we know the energy and support needed to shift the paradigm. We work with our community of founders and advisors to help companies get further and faster from the very beginning.
Driven by conviction
Time has come to free the potential of women entrepreneurs, on their journey to build the companies of tomorrow.
We aim to reveal founders who overcome adversity, shake up conventions and summon the future to challenge the present. We invest early, from pre-seed to Series A, mainly in France and Europe, with a few investments in the U.S.
Together, we share the same values and mission: reveal founders who overcome adversity, shake up conventions and summon the future to challenge the present. We answer our entrepreneurial call because you have already answered yours.
