Who we are

Make change, make money.

BBG Ventures is an early-stage fund leading investments in women & diverse founders who are uniquely qualified to build for our polycultural future - we were one of the first funds to bet on overlooked founders in 2014.

We believe the next generation of breakout companies will be built by underestimated founders solving big problems for the 99%. We’re here to give them that first, crucial investment.
