Leveling the playing field,
one entrepreneur at a time
Equal Equity Impact - About
We believe that when different people flourish, we all flourish. We are a not-for-profit venture capital firm focused on democratizing capital allocation. We diversify which founders receive funding by primarily investing in early-stage companies led by ethnic minority, female, and LGBTQIA entrepreneurs. Through the empowerment of underrepresented founders, we aim to level the playing field.
