Investors need help raising capital, too. By adding first time managers to our fundraising focus, we can create exponentially better outcomes for the entire venture ecosystem.
Our vision is to incubate 1,000 venture capital funds that can invest in 100,000 world-changing companies.
As a first step, we're launching Time to Raise +Investors, a community of LPs, VCs and emerging managers with the resources and guidance to launch a first fund.
Support from peers at the same stage and seasoned venture leaders who are one step ahead
Introductions to interested LPs and advice on approaching goverment programs
Standard operating procedures, templates, and best practices to save time, reduce risk, and meet ESG requirements
Traditional investors sometimes challenge us by asking how many women really want to start their own funds. Let's show them a strong community of women doing exactly that.
+Investors is the community dedicated to emerging female managers across Europe. Join to receive:
Invitations to live and online events with venture thought leaders from all over Europe
Playbooks and templates based on high-performing, impactful venture operations
Purposeful connections to advisors and mentors
Building a community of emerging managers is just step one. Next, we’re working with partners to create a best-in-class VC accelerator that will help leading women from around Europe raise their first fund. Then we're launching Europe’s first fund-of-funds devoted to backing female managers.
If you’re an angel or startup executive exploring the onramps to VC, or a VC professional looking to launch your first fund, this is your community.
If you’ve started raising or have simply considered it, our network can accelerate your path to Fund I. Meet other emerging VC managers as well as seasoned GPs and venture-savvy LPs from around Europe who are passionate about seeing more women start their venture journey.
“If I had more capital to invest, I would spend more time investing. To me, investing is the most sustainable way to get joy from helping startups: I prioritize economic returns, which allows me to get more joy from supporting more startups.”
“After years as an angel, I’m raising my first fund. The US-based VC-programme I did was helpful in getting me to this point. That said, Europe needs a Europe-based community with a Euopean focus. The regulations here are significantly different. So are the capital sources & approaches."
“I find this project interesting and important. I’ve made some good angel investments so far, but in order to keep going, I either need to raise more capital or exit my winners. This initiative will help me set aside time to raise.”
“We need to close funding gap for women and founders of color. Let’s build a community of female led GPs and founders to make this happen! ”
Raising Fund I will still be hard. But as a community, we can catalyze one another's fundraising process and stay motivated.
No costs and no obligations--what you put in is what you get out.
Curated events and educational materials + the ability to help us create curriculum.
Carefully screened peers and mentors committed to the mission.
