DyMynd Angels is the only Women-led and Female-focused Angel Investing Initiative in Chicago

The DyMynd Angel Initiative can fill the gap for women to get to the next levels of funding. However, we need a model that meets her needs:


  • The lack of objectivity in early state funding allow for gender bias to drive key investment decisions, traditional funding models result in women only receiving 3% of all VC funding.
  • There are not enough female angel investors, in the US only 7% of all VC partners are women.
  • The pitch model is unresponsive to the values and leadership styles of female founders.

Join the 1920 Campaign

The first step to becoming a leader in the DyMynd Angel Initiative is to join the “Vote Your Money” Campaign. Regardless of your investment experience, you can help shift the entrepreneurial ecosystem in a way that truly empowers Chicago’s entrepreneurial woman.

We invite you to be one of the 1,920 women we are challenging to donate $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000 (per woman) to collectively underwrite 20 female led start-ups throughout Chicago and the Midwest.

In 1920, women won the right to vote in America after years of battling inequality. But somehow, in today’s world, women are still not treated equally. In fact, women only receive 3% of all VC funding in the US. For every $100.00 a male entrepreneur receives, a female entrepreneur only receives $2.90! We’re saying enough is enough and changing the economic opportunity for women and money, because women deserve the right to equal access for funding.
