Comcast Ventures recognizes the power of female leaders driving tech and innovation.

For Women’s History Month last year, our Managing Director and Head of Funds, Amy Banse, highlighted those in our portfolio driving disruption including Adi Tatarko of Houzz, Katia Beauchamp of Birchbox, Sandra Oh Lin of KiwiCrate as well as Amy Jain and Daniella Yacobovsky of BaubleBar.

Since then, we’ve been busy investing in market disruptors, adding more female-led companies to our portfolio so, in celebration of Comcast NBCUniversal's support of Startup Grind’s second annual Female Founders Month, here are a few savvy female founders we’ve added to our growing portfolio:

  • Amy Errett, who is transforming the at-home hair coloring experience with Madison Reed.

  • Maureen Fan, a pioneer in cinematic virtual reality through her company Baobab Studios, which created and debuted a VR short "Invasion!".

  • Stephanie Korey and Jen Rubio of Away Luggage, a company providing millennial-focused luggage options.

  • Marah Lidey and Naomi Hirabayashi who bring daily intention and inspiration through their text messaging service, Shine.

  • Jewel Burks, founder of replacement parts solution, Partpic, a Comcast Ventures Catalyst investment, who found herself pitching to President Obama at the first White House Demo Day.

We also profiled Daniella Yacobovsky, co-founder of BaubleBar, the go-to destination for online fashion jewelry on her relationship with Comcast Ventures and learnings as an entrepreneur.

Founders are part of our DNA. This month, let’s recognize female entrepreneurs.
