OUR STORY


In 2017 Impulse4women was born out of a desire to increase the probability of fundraising for women tech entrepreneurs and social enterprises. It was clear there was a different relationship between investors and female-led tech startups compared to the male-led startups. We created this international non-profit because we wanted to change the perspective, inviting investors to step closer to the female startup ecosystem, leveraging the power of the female network effect.
Very quickly a movement started to see VC investment in female-led tech startups grow from 2% to 35%. We’re here to help achieve that goal!
Built by investment experts and entrepreneurs from multiple industries, we are poised to create a game-changing investment marketplace for founders, investors, corporates, and public & private organizations.
Business matchmaking for a better future!
We support every stage of development providing the required tools and skills to increase the probability of funding.
