WE BELIEVE IN HER

BECAUSE WE ARE HER

Jane VC was founded by female operators and investors with ties to Stanford.

‚Äč

We bow down to the entrepreneurs out there. They are dreaming big. Trying to change the world. Riding the ups and downs. They give us energy, motivation and hope.

 

In return, we give our guidance, thought partnership, investment, and introductions joyfully. If we can make the process of creating something from nothing just a little bit easier, then we’ve done some good. If we can get them the attention, opportunities and returns their world changing ideas deserve, then we’ve lived our mission.
