LPs & GPs empowering women on all sides of the table.

January 15-17, 2020 | The Sanctuary, Phoenix, AZ

Equity Summit is an invitation-only gathering that brings together thought-leading LPs and GPs for intimate, off-the-record conversations designed to drive industry change, resulting in more investments in women GPs.

The inaugural Equity Summit took place in mid-January 2019, and gathered a diverse set of LP’s with perspectives representing endowments, foundations, funds of funds and family offices — and GPs that represented the top leading new firms as well as existing funds.

Equity Summit was founded by three accomplished women who have lived and worked in technology for the past decade — as engineers, heads of product, and as founders.

As they began their investment careers, they observed that women partners have not had the same access to the venture capital ecosystem as men. Collectively, they determined that the best way to change that, was to create a high level forum for discussion, to address these issues, and begin to forge important relationships between GP’s and LPs — with the aim of driving change in the industry, resulting in more investment in women GPs.
