We are Europe's only dedicated women's health investment fund. Investing since 2021 and now raising a £100mn fund, we invest in pioneering technology businesses built to offer personalised healthcare to the four billion women worldwide. 

About

Goddess Gaia Ventures (GGV) is capitalising on the $1.1 trillion women’s healthcare market by investing in five core pillars - women's fertility; women's cancer; women's wellness; women's lifestyle diseases and Femtech products and services. 

 

Women-centred healthcare has been historically overlooked and underfunded, despite women accounting for 51% of the population. With only 4% of all healthcare research and funding going to women’s health, and 65% of that is focused on fertility, there is a clear need to have a differentiated and specialised approach towards the healthcare needs for women.

 

Through our pre-series A investments, we invest in founders who want to build extraordinary companies that will be impactful and change the world.

We are always looking for the next big idea. Get in touchWe'd love to meet you.
