The founders of the JumpFund are Southern women engaged in start-up ventures, venture capital incubators, banking and finance, and philanthropy who observed in 2013 that the key players — both investors & entrepreneurs — in our city’s dynamic start-up scene were mostly men.
In an attempt to answer the challenging question of “where are the women?“, the JumpFund was launched to provide the necessary capital for women entrepreneurs to ignite growth ventures throughout the Southeast. Since its official launch in 2014, the JumpFund has already changed the conversation in our regional entrepreneurial ecosystem and exponentially increased investment in female entrepreneurs and gender diverse teams. The JumpFund’s secondary goal is to encourage more women to become angel investors to positively affect the dismal gender ratio in this asset class and support more women-led companies.
