Leveling the Playing Field
Creating a new model for investing in women-led companies.
Chai Ventures is a NYC-based pre-seed and seed stage fund investing in women-led companies solving critical problems with businesses that deliver impact at scale across the high- growth sectors of better world, health and wellness, and human connection.
We’re focused on investing in exceptional women founders – founders who are exceptions to the rule and have been underestimated in some way.
We take a full ecosystem approach and apply a multifaceted strategy to supporting women entrepreneurs by considering the pivotal role of women as both capital allocators and recipients. We cultivate relationships with women check-writers (both emerging and active) to increase their overall conviction around investing in women-led startups at their firms.
