I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the news that we’ve secured our first round of funding at VINA. What this means for you lovely vinas is that we now have resources to make the Hey! VINA app so much better for you. What this also means is that we, an all woman team, are also feeling a #ladybrag coming on as women founders account for about 15% of all Series Seed startup investments. And I know that % drops dramatically when you look at 100% female founding teams. Our round was comprised of 50% women investors, including the amazing partners Sarah Tavel of Greylock and Katherine Barr of Wildcat Ventures which we think is also pretty fabulous.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
- WE’RE HIRING – join us!!
- We have our own office, a lovely little loft in SOMA.
- We have 2 new vinas on the team, making the VINA team a total of 5 amazing women.
- We’ve made some great Hey! VINA app updates including the addition of the VINAzine and Instagram integration.
Stay tuned for more exciting things to come. 🙂
Cheers to one small step for women, one giant leap for VINA. #LADYBRAG
