We stand in solidarity with the Black community in the fight against injustice and inequality. We are committed to improving and enabling broad diversity in the venture capital and entrepreneurial communities; we are committed to investing in teams that value diversity and provide equal opportunity. As a firm we have made donations to Black Girls Code and The National Coalition of 100 Black Women and are working with our companies and our colleagues through All Raise, Broadway Angels, and the NVCA to continue the fight.
We are a team of experienced entrepreneurs and investors who bring the power of our network to help our entrepreneurs change the world. With over 7 IPOs, 23 Exits, and over 570 financings, we know what it takes to build successful companies.
We lead with our values in all of our endeavors. We believe that collaboration – with our entrepreneurs and with our peers – is critical to yours and our success. We believe that diversity matters and leads to better decision-making and outcomes – 80% of our portfolio founders come from a diverse background, and almost 40% are female. Also, we believe in giving back – we are the first venture firm to commit $1,000,000 (5%) of our carry profit pool to the communities where our entrepreneurs live and work. Finally, we hold honesty and integrity above all else. These are the operating principles for Owl Capital and our commitment to you, our community.
