Global Women in VC Community

Women in VC Directory

As the world’s largest self-reported database of female venture investors, the Global Women in VC Directory is the foundation of our global network. Our 4,000+ members use our directory as a powerful tool to identify qualified co-investors, talent recruits, new connections in different geographies, market diligence, and more. The directory is password-protected and open to women who are employed full-time at institutional funds, corporate funds, impact funds, accelerators, university funds, fundraising platforms, venture studios, and family office funds making direct investments. Applications are reviewed and approved on a rolling basis.

Women in VC Slack Group

The Women in VC Slack Group is a private platform for the members in our community to engage on a daily basis across over 100 active channels. These channels have become powerful micro-communities within our broader global network; the members regularly share resources and organize educational webinars or virtual/in-person networking events. With over 4,000 members, our Slack is the de facto discussion and discovery forum for industry events, investment opportunities, job postings, stage/sector/geography specific trends, emerging manager resources, and more. To date, there have been over 100,000+ messages across the community and hundreds of virtual events.

About this Research
Predominantly Self-Reported
Of the 4,281 profiles analyzed, 95% (or 4,059 people) shared their own, self-reported data. We collected this information organically through Google and Airtable forms. This data is reviewed biannually to keep the directory current, removing churn and updating positions or job changes.
Member Requirements
All members of Women in VC are required to be full time at a check writing institution making direct investments into startups. This includes women at institutional funds, corporate VCs, impact funds, accelerator funds, family offices with a direct strategy, university funds, fundraising platforms, and venture studios on a case by case basis.
Layering in Public Data
For the remaining 222 profiles analyzed, we pulled a subset of relevant data from publicly available datasets, and cross referenced the profiles with LinkedIn data to ensure the information was current. These supporting references included: Latina Women in VC, Black Women in VC and the All Raise initiative foundersforchange.org, which powers the Diverse Investor List.
Slight Bias Toward NYC
As we founded this group in New York City, we have reasons to believe there may be a slight bias toward women on the East Coast, which is why we have also made an attempt to backfill any missing data from VC firms in other locations, for purposes of the published research.
