Background Information

Overview
The Helm is a community and a venture fund that rethinks how people invest in female entrepreneurs -- a segment of the financial sector that received only 2.5% of all venture capital in 2016 despite consistently outperforming all-male teams. An alternative to philanthropy, The Helm was founded on the idea that additional value can be created for investors--female and male alike--by allowing them to see their money drive change first-hand through bespoke experiences, venture education, exclusive content, and behind-the-scenes tours and series.
