FairFunders is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to help underrepresented founders build successful startups and connect with investors. We advocate for diversity and inclusion in both the startup community and the venture capital industry.

As female founders, we have experienced firsthand the unique challenges of raising funding for our startups. In July 2017, we heard numerous stories of females experiencing harassment and discrimination, and we realized something needed to change. We are a group of female founders who came together from around the world with the shared desire to make raising funding more equitable.
