Golden Seeds Celebrates 20 Years of Investing in Women Entrepreneurs

In the video above, we reflect on the past two decades of our journey and the compelling stories of others who have joined us along the way.

In 2004, Golden Seeds mobilized to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs.  Over these years, over 1100 investors have joined our angel network or invested in our venture funds.  We have invested over $180 million in 250 companies that have gone on to raise an additional $2 billion.  Our training program for investors, the Knowledge Institute, sets the standard for investor education.  And our nationwide footprint, with eight chapters and members in 27 states, allows us to find promising women-led companies throughout the United States. 

We are proud of Golden Seeds’ leadership in this movement and grateful to all who have participated – our investors, entrepreneurs and the entire ecosystem of early-stage investors and supporters.
