First Followers Fellowship

A cohort-based educational fellowship for next-gen gender diverse first-time fund managers.
Ventures led by women are more profitable than men-led, yet they raise only 2.3% of venture funding.

First Followers wants to become a launching pad for women First Time Fund Managers (FTFMs) who naturally see the power of ventures led by women and can yield 10-20% higher ROIs on AUM than all-male fund manager teams.
