We fund and co-found disruptive companies

Partnering with a diverse range of founders, the Startup Studio combines ideas, capital, resources, and talent to build the companies of the future.

We build with founders that are as diverse as the customers they serve.

We believe that the greatest innovations come from lived experiences. That's why we build and invest in founders with diverse life, career, and professional experiences who are building the future for women and multicultural consumers.

We love founders from truly diverse backgrounds with unique and deep insight into their customers, unbelievable grit, and hustle, who are building something disruptive and clearly distinct from their competitors.

If you’re driven and passionate about what you’re building, be sure to get on our radar!
