What is Gaingels?
Gaingels Syndicate is a profits-focused, mission based affinity organization which targets investment in companies worldwide that have at least one LGBT founder, senior C-level executive, or board member.
Our mission is to channel LGBT dollars into the notoriously non diverse community of private equity and venture capital.
How we work
Gaingels uses its extensive network within the LGBT community and its allies for sourcing deals – all investments to date have come from member referrals.
