  • RevUp Capital's Operation Athena

    Women-led companies receive less than 3% of dollars invested into early and growth stage companies. Despite this severe funding gap, companies founded and co-founded by women perform better over time—lasting longer, becoming more profitable, and producing better returns for investors.

     

    The women of RevUp are no exception. Together set a high bar for entrepreneurial excellence.

     

    Led by Founding Partner Melissa Withers, RevUp's Operation Athena program is central to our commitment to invest in women-led companies and those where women have ascended into leadership roles.

     

    Through Operational Athena RevUp has a priority screening process for companies with at least one female co-founder, an expedited review for qualifying applicants, and a fellowship program for women-led companies that are not yet eligible for RevUp funding, but with the right support soon will be! For more about this program, contact us.

     

    Meanwhile, check out a few of the faces of the women of RevUp, many of whom were the early inspiration for the ways we have changed our process to better support female entrepreneurs!

    Brian helped Ofoto, Moo.com, and Teespring scale their operations to meet global demand.
