We invest in high-growth companies with market leadership potential and ESG-friendly business practices. We target consumer-facing companies that we believe will benefit from financial sponsorship by a female-focused fund.
Female founders and executives want more women investors — not just on their cap tables, but as active and engaged strategic partners. Suttona provides growth-stage funding and true partnership to support female leaders.
