Science is a collaborative discipline, yet science is being held back by a gender gap. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are steering girls and women away from science-related fields. We want to break these biases and show that women can raise capital for their ventures as well as men.
To celebrate the Day of Women and Girls in Science, we have compiled a list of some of the most well-funded venture-backed women founders of privately held companies in our markets, the US, Europe and China.
Also, today, we want to celebrate the talented women founders in NGP Capital's portfolio, including Ritu Narayan (Zūm), Lydia Yan (NEXT), Stephanie Tilenius (Vida), Madhura Maskasky (Platform9), and Ida Tin (Clue).
