Helpful resources and networks for women founders and investors.
At GingerBread Capital, we invest in the next generation of women founders and entrepreneurs leading high-growth businesses. We help women gain access to the knowledge, networks and capital they need to build and scale successful enterprises, and we encourage other women to do the same.
Why We Invest In Women
Throughout her career in finance, GingerBread Capital founder Linnea Roberts has focused on creating more opportunities for women to excel in business and finance. Now, Roberts has turned her sights on supporting women in business, as entrepreneurs and as investors. GingerBread Capital, which she launched after retiring from Goldman Sachs in 2016, is the culmination of Roberts’ love for tackling business challenges, and her passion for helping women gain access to the capital they need to grow their businesses, as well as provide opportunities for other women investors to support women founders.
