United in our Mission to Level the Playing Field

The funding gap is real for early-stage women founders, and the need for investment is critical. Over the last 5 years, less than 3% of venture capital raised went to women founders. Whereas over 80% of all the funding went to male-only founding teams.

We are moving the needle by increasing:

  • Funding for women founders
  • The capital available to women entrepreneurs
  • The number of women making investments

If you’d like to turn your passion into action—as a mentor, advisor, or investor—we can’t wait to meet you!

How it Works!

As an Investor, you are part of a selection process to:

  • Assess and evaluate final pitches
  • Review data rooms
  • Select the prize winners

SheBoot investors award the top prize money in the form of a convertible loan. A convertible loan is a short-term debt that converts into equity. The basic terms are:

  • An interest rate of 8% per annum
  • A discount rate of 20%
  • Terms of five years
  • Capped price of a minimum of $2.5 million CDN

SheBoot Investors are Limited Partners of a fund or Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), which is managed by Mistral Venture Partners, a seed-stage venture firm based in Canada’s Capital.
