Who We Are

Plum Alley Investments is a private membership platform that gives individuals, families and institutions the opportunity to invest in a new way. We offer members access they cannot get elsewhere: to invest in the most promising women entrepreneurs and gender diverse teams driving brilliant ideas and developing new technologies that can change the world. And, we offer our members highly-interactive experiences and high-level insights so they can truly be informed and personally engaged in directing their investments.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

“We believe that venture capital is one of the best ways to have influence and impact in the world. And it’s critical that a broader base of investors, especially women, have a seat at the table in directing capital to the companies driving innovation for our future and solving some of the most challenging problems of our time.”

Plum Alley is committed to building an inclusive ecosystem of investors and influencers who are shaping the future through the ways they direct their capital. We believe that:
  • Women entrepreneurs and gender diverse founding teams are building world class companies that present compelling venture investment opportunities
  • We should tap into the rich insights and perspectives of women and men as we invest for the future
  • A broader base of investors should have access to invest in next generation innovations and participate in the potential wealth creation from the success of those companies

Plum Alley is dedicated to advancing women entrepreneurs and gender balanced teams.

WHAT WE DO

“Plum Alley was founded as a new model. We are not an angel network. Not a fund. We are a solution for individuals, for families, for corporations seeking to invest in companies founded by gender diverse teams that are making a difference in the world.”

What our members are saying

“One of the advantages that Plum Alley brings is that they really curate the selection process. They only bring us quality deals. And I know that. When I get something from Plum Alley I know to pay attention. I look at every single one. Because I know that it’s going to be worth my time.”
JERI FINARD
Corporate Boards: Seventh Generation, Fronteir Communications, Serta-Simmons, Kraft/Mondelez
Former Global CMO; Godiva Chocolateir - Former President
“I’ve been involved in finance for a long time, but I’ve never been involved in investing in really interesting start-up companies before. You can be as involved as you want to be. You can bring in your own resources. You can make suggestions. You can ask questions. So, you can actually have input.”
DIANA TAYLOR
Corporate Director: Citigroup Inc., Sotheby's, Brookfield Asset Management Inc. Chair of Board: Accion, Hudson River Park Trust
“One of the real advantages of Plum Alley is that you have access to the executives and the boards that actually run these businesses. And you don’t have that when you make investments in a public company or an ETF. Your money is there – but you are not.”
LESLIE VAN ORSDEL
Bloomberg L.P., Global Head of Client Risk and Internal Audit
“We’re not just investing in a pool of companies, we have choice and that choice that we make is influenced by the people we’re able to speak to and the questions we’re able to ask them.”
JOHN EDDY
Business Owner, Elected Town Rep. of Greenwich, CT
