    Description:

    BBG Ventures is an early stage fund focused on consumer internet and mobile startups with at least one female founder. Investments typically range from $100k to $250k. BBG does not lead rounds, nor do they take board seats. BBG Ventures is backed by AOL and grew out of AOL's #BUILTBYGIRLS initiative. AOL has a long and successful history of investing in women's content: MAKERS, Thrive, Global Motherhood and the Cambio/Girls Who Code program all launched within AOL, which is consistently the leader in Comscore's Lifestyle category. With this new initiative, AOL is investing in women as builders, part of a broader initiative to bring more women and girls into tech.
