Backstage Capital live on Republic

Investment adviser focused on companies led by underestimated founders

To cap off a momentous day for Republic and crowdfunding investments Backstage Capital is announcing their increase in offering sizeโ€”making more room for new investors!
Highlights
โ€ข Investment adviser focused on people of color, women and LGBTQ+ founders
โ€ข Team has invested in 160+ companies led by underrepresented founders
โ€ข First 100 companies raised $250M+ and created over 500 jobs
โ€ข Estimated 4 trillion dollars unrealized in VC due to the lack of diversity
โ€ข Investors include Marc Andreessen, Stewart Butterfield, Ellen Pao + more
โ€ข Co-investors Sequoia Capital, Initialized, Y Combinator, Techstars + more
Less than 10% of all venture capital deals go to women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ founders. While many view the lack of investment in underrepresented founders as a social problem, there’s actually much more to it. Data shows that diverse teams perform better, and diverse investors make better investment decisions.
Backstage Capital is a venture capital platform devoted to lifting up under-represented founders. By investing in more than 160 companies since 2015, Backstage has provided founders with necessary funding, opened doors to the venture capital ecosystem, and led the way for a new approach to venture capital investing.
