What Makes Our Approach Unique
US Investment Strategy
The US investment strategy is to invest in growing businesses with defensible value propositions that offer scalable and sustainable solutions that contribute to a woman’s ability to gain economic stability and prosperity, become equipped to pursue the same income opportunities as others, and attain financial independence and well-being. Businesses do not need to serve women exclusively or be led by women; however, their solutions should improve the lives of women or alleviate pain points hindering economic empowerment.
We invest in business services, technology, consumer, and healthcare companies to help them scale and grow.
Our differentiated investment strategy is based on 5 pillars:
THESIS-DRIVEN POINT OF VIEW
FLEXIBLE INVESTMENT STRUCTURE
COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP APPROACH
UNIQUE "AMPLIFY" VALUE CREATION MODEL
DATA-DRIVEN INSIGHTS & PERFORMANCE
