Why female-led startups?

Women are exceptional leaders and entrepreneurs, having founded some of the world's most successful and impactful businesses.

Studies show that startups with a female founder or cofounder outperform those with all male founders, generating higher returns on investment and more in cumulative revenue.

Despite the proven track-record, female founded ventures still find it difficult to raise investment compared to male founded ventures. Only 2% of global venture capital funding went to female founders in 2021.

ArcAngels Fund II exists to help level the playing field.

Join us in backing exceptional Kiwi businesswomen, and help to increase the support and capital invested in female founded companies.
