Inside the Innovation Huddle | Female Founders

VentureFuel Inside the Innovation Huddle Female Founders

Our team has an ongoing internal huddle throughout the year: a team meeting where we share the most disruptive and exciting startups and emerging technologies from around the world. The only rule is that they canโ€™t solve a current client challenge directly. This way, we retain our superpower of spotting creative adjacencies and disruptive outer-horizon solutions.

While we are always looking for diverse gender representation in the Ventures we're watching and the startups we source for our clients, this March, in celebration of Women's History Month, we focused on sharing the most disruptive and exciting startups and emerging tech companies led by female founders. 

Below is a short list of those startups. 

  • For patients with skin, hair, or nail ๐Ÿ’… issues, Piction Health provides expert care ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿป by dermatologists within 2 days, including diagnosis ๐Ÿ” and a personalized care plan. Piction Health's goal ๐ŸŽฏ is to ensure every person has access ๐Ÿ”‘ to high quality, expert dermatology care from the comfort of ๐Ÿก home.
  • Amino Labs makes hands-on kits, ๐Ÿ’ป software, hardware, and learning ๐Ÿง  resources to support teaching and learning genetic ๐Ÿงฌ engineering and biotechnology. By learning these skills ๐Ÿ’ช and concepts at a young age, the next โญ generation will be prepared to face the ๐Ÿ“ˆ growing challenges of our future.
  • Goodbuy is a browser ๐Ÿ“ฒ extension that makes it simple to ๐Ÿ›’ shop what you want. Whenever you are shopping on a mega-retailer ๐ŸŒ website, goodbuy will pop up with unique small businesses ๐Ÿ› that match the products you are already ๐ŸŽ shopping for!

  • Diem is building ๐Ÿ—๏ธ a social search๐Ÿ”Ž engine to scale candid conversations that happen โ€œbehind closed doors ๐Ÿšชโ€โ€”whether theyโ€™re about friendships, birth control, toxic masculinity, harassment, chronic pain, big career moves, enthralling books, easy recipes, and everything in betweenโ€” into public and credible โœ”๏ธ resources.


Huddle Up With Us Around Innovation 

We do this to ensure we are always exploring new and innovative solutions to today's most pressing challenges. Of course, for client work, every startup is deep-vetted and selected to solve for the KPIs that drive impact.
