Women in Private Capital
Meeting Nordic LPs
3 December 2020
As a Maryland-based Benefit Corporation, our mission at Private Capital Development is to mobilize private capital globally. To that end, we are delighted to partner with Beyond the Billion™ & The Billion Dollar Fund for Women™ under UN SDG Goal 5.A to mobilize private capital toward women in private capital.
Beyond The Billion™(BTB), launched by Shelly Porges and Sarah Chen, who founded The Billion Dollar Fund for Women™(TBDF), was created to address the gender venture investment gap where women-founded teams receive less than 3% of total VC funding. TBDF mobilized a global consortium of 80+ venture funds committed to investing $1Bn in women-founded companies. Shelly and Sarah launched Beyond The Billion (“BTB”) to catalyze capital deployed to these venture funds, ensuring their continued capacity to invest-by mobilizing LP commitments, convening LPs, and connecting them to GPs.
Working together, we help mobilize private capital in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5.A
