Women-founded start-ups raise nearly a billion dollars in first two months of 2022

U.S. start-ups founded by women raised $987 million in venture funding in the first two months of 2022, according to PitchBook data. Funding for female-founded or co-founded companies has been trending up in recent years, and 2021 saw the creation of several women-led funds, incubators for female founders and more new companies.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, PitchBook has added a new module to the Female Founders Dashboard, in partnership with SXSW Pitch. The dashboard, which is updated monthly, now includes an interactive breakdown of capital investment across emerging tech verticals and an analysis of the performance of female-founded startups at SXSW in recent years.
