About Us

We are a collective of angel investors. We are coming together to invest in women and non-binary founders with a focus on investments in Black, Indigenous, and Women of Colour-led companies.

We believe that there is space for many founders to thrive and be successful, and we know that access to the resources it takes to succeed are not equitably distributed. We are here to help close the gaps.

Our Story

We found each other at work. We’ve built teams together, we've been leaders in scaling one of the biggest tech companies in the world, we’ve shared many laughs, and, above all else, we’ve always had each other’s back. By combining all of our skill sets, energy, networks, and passion we have been changing the spaces we operate in and supporting one another along the way. We realized that this was something incredibly unique and unfortunately rare.

So with that, we founded Backbone. Our table is long, with plenty of seats. 

How It Works

We each make individual investment decisions, but collectively support every founder in our portfolio. Whether one or all of us has invested capital, the group is invested in your success.

We believe in the power of the collective and bringing our experience to your team. As a founder, you will access expertise in product, data, UX, marketing, talent, legal, operations, and strategy.

All submissions are reviewed by one or more of our partners. Selected submissions are brought to the whole collective and founders are invited to meet with the interested angel investors. As we are full time operators, we ask you to specify any upcoming deadlines.

We are as interested in your company as we are in the journey you took to get here, so let’s talk.
