The Power of Network - Influence

When a valuable and thriving community engages to support our portfolio, and when capital is invested to fuel their growth, doors are opened and conversations begin. When we invest in each of our portfolio companies, the Gaingels Pledge is a starting point for those conversations to happen within companies and boards, and manifesting into more inclusive policies and practices. And as companies realize and benefit from our input, support and value-add, the effect grows beyond each company, reaching other investors, founders, and players in the ecosystem, who realize the value we collectively bring, and invite us into more opportunities, strengthening our community, and in turn creating more opportunities for enhanced returns for our investing members.
