The Mission: Connecting top underrepresented founders to their first investor.

Nationally, 41% of tech startups pitching for funding are women or minority-led.

Less than 5% of venture capital goes to under-represented founder-led companies.

That's a significant gap.
30% of our tech innovators are in it.

Startup Runway turns the funding gap into an onramp.
