Who We Are

About Golden Seeds

A discerning group of investors, seeking and funding high-potential, women-led businesses. And creating lasting impact.

It is well documented: Women are starting businesses at record levels, with the ideas, skills and talents to build great companies. But like all early-stage entrepreneurs, they need capital to fuel their growth. Golden Seeds, one of the nation’s largest and most active investment groups, focuses squarely on this high-potential segment.

Our investment thesis rests on the extensive research that concludes that gender diverse teams produce better return on equity. By seeking companies where women hold leadership positions and own substantial equity, we are funding companies that are likely to have diverse perspectives that will contribute to ultimate success.

Since 2005, Golden Seeds’ members – today over 275 strong – along with its venture funds, have invested over $90 million in more than 85 exciting women-led enterprises…and counting. Headquartered in New York City, Golden Seeds also has chapters in Boston, Silicon Valley, Southern California and Texas – and active members throughout the country.
