What does "Invest Equitably" mean? Well, as of 2016, women-led companies only received ~2% of total venture capital funding. Only ~7% of venture capitalists are women.
Research shows that female entrepreneurs are typically asked prevention-oriented questions, while male entrepreneurs are asked promotion-oriented questions. Female entrepreneurs are judged on their looks. Harassment is a problem.
Train VCs to recognize and avoid bias. Ask better, unbiased questions. Call out, and don’t tolerate, bad behavior. Set diversity targets.
Invest equitably. Spread the message by wearing your values.
*(Note regarding colors: Vintage black tee not pictured. Additionally, for reasons we don't understand, "men's purple" and "women's purple" are different. Men's purple is closer to eggplant, and women's purple is bright purple. We realize the irony and see it as a case-in-point of why we exist.)
**(Note regarding sizes: The women's tees run small. We recommend ordering 1-2 sizes up from your normal size. If you are normally a small, we recommend ordering a large.)
