When women thrive, children benefit, communities transform and economies flourish.
Today, women are severely underrepresented in the entrepreneurial world.
They represent 50% of the population, but make up less than 25% of startup founders.
Only 2.3% of total venture capital funding is invested in female-led businesses.
And when it comes to securing a business loan, the average success rate for women is only 31%.
The future doesn’t have to look like this!
Together, we can change it – we can close the funding gap to back women in not only the workforce, but in entrepreneurship.
With you, we can support a woman to start her own business, attain financial independence and live a life to its fullest potential.
You can help change the funding and business world for the better for generations to come.
What is Lift Angels™?
Our Lift Angels™ movement goes one step further than starting or backing a single crowdfunding project.
We’ve created a revolutionary funding ecosystem that not only raises but redistributes funds to women-led startups via the Pay-It-Forward Fund that is collectively built by all the Lift Angels.
We’ve built a shared-value community that connects female entrepreneurs to backers and mentors who help them access the skills and support needed to start or scale their business.
On its own, it’s not enough to budge the flywheel. But multiply this by thousands of people across the world and together, we can create the momentum needed to close the funding gap for women-led businesses.
We can Lift, Inspire, Fund and Trust each other and help female entrepreneurs thrive in the business world, thereby impacting their families and communities now and into the future.

How our Pay-It-Forward Fund works
50% of your pledge goes directly into our Lift Angels™ Pay-It-Forward Fund.
Every 2 months, this Fund is distributed to live crowdfunding projects as additional funding.
As a Lift Angel, you are able to apply, nominate and vote on which projects will be the recipients.
Our 2023 goal is to raise $100,000 for the Pay-It-Forward Fund to provide extra capital to 20-30 women-led projects on the platform to help them start or scale their businesses.

How has Lift Angels™ Impacted you?
We’ve spoken to four inspiring founders. Here’s what they had to say…
Lift Women is an amazing group I’ve been so lucky to be introduced to. They helped me start my crowdfunding project and reached my goal!
This has given me a sense of purpose and has turned a negative experience into something that I can grow on and create something beautiful.
Lift Women, to me, is an indication of a new phase of the business world, the funding world, the entrepreneurship world.
The backers gave me FEEDBACK. They gave me MONEY. They gave me POWER to make decisions to move forward. Without them, I wouldn’t be here today.
