For Investors

As an Investor, you are probably looking for a differentiated deal-flow. We want to help with that. The LGBTQ+ community is diverse by its very nature and our Access to Capital team works diligently to send our Investor Partners curated deal flow from our LGBTQ+ Founders who are actively fundraising.

Reach out to our Access to Capital Program to get onboarded as a StartOut investor.

    Investor Portal

    Among other things, we support LGBTQ+ founders by connecting them with investors (VCs and angels) through our investor portal. It is a free online tool available to accredited investors interested in looking at deal-flow opportunities within our community. We currently work with 400+ VCs and angels. Once signed up, you’ll gain access to our Community Resources where you can sign up for upcoming Investor-exclusive events, demo days, and more!
