The Mission

We believe that innovation is not gender-specific, so we do not accept that 97.5 percent of the most valuable capital supporting innovation should go to male founders only. It is imperative that female voices have a role in creating the companies, technologies, and systems that will shape our future.

This is not only a problem that needs to be solved; it is also an opportunity to drive outsized returns by investing risk-taking capital into the next generation of female-led innovation.

Fund I

The Helm launched Fund I in 2018, and we’ve invested nearly $1.5M of seed capital in 11 of the most promising female-founded companies (with female CEOs) across the country. Our portfolio spans industry verticals and business models, from Healthcare to Design to the Future of Work and Connected Hardware.

The world isn’t built for women. We invest in the things that are.
