Women Who Invest in Tech Startups

Outlines Venture Group believes startup investment augmented by engagement and mentorship increases the likelihood of success for both startups and investors. Founding partners, Gillian Muessig and Anne Kennedy employ a replicable review, investment, and acceleration model that includes deep engagement, mentorship, and support of the invested startups, including a board seat.

Outlines Venture Group’s purpose is to build better ways to live and work together worldwide. In the 21st century, that is liveliest online.  All of our investing is now in The Sybilla Masters Fund, trademarked, Mastersfund where we seek growth growth stage startups led by women because women-led companies return more value to investors than all-male ones. Likely candidates will have a product and sales, and a full-time leadership team, comprising at least one woman in a role of critical and strategic leadership, appropriately titled and compensated.
