Jane VC, led by the inspiring Maren Bannon and Jennifer Keiser Neundorfer, recently partnered with Carta to spread some light over the ownership gap in equity.

The study they conducted shows something that needs to change: female founders own 5% of startup equity, while male founders own 64%. On average, a female founder owns just 48 cents for every dollar her male founder colleague owns.

Jane VC is committed to make the change, just like we are: “if we want to see long term change in the tech world, we have to make sure women are benefitting from their fair share. We must start by closing the equity gap between male and female founders. Only then will women truly have a seat at the table.”
