20 women in venture capital who made partner or higher at firms like Khosla Ventures and GV in 2023

  • The venture capital industry is overwhelmingly male.
  • But more firms made moves to close the gender gap in 2023 by hiring and promoting women to partners.
  • The new check-writers include Khosla Ventures’ Alice Brooks and Founders Fund’s Jennifer Campbell.

Startups and venture capital are still overwhelmingly male-dominated, but more and more female investors are claiming a seat at the table each year.

In many ways, progress has slowed, particularly as investors tighten their purse strings and founders prepare for a “mass extinction event.” Women accounted for 16% of general partners at VC firms with more than $50 million in assets in 2022, according to PitchBook data, the most recent year for which data was available.

Women in venture capital who became partners or general partners for the first time in 2023 are being recognized by Business Insider. Our list excludes the many women who go it alone to raise microfunds or female angel investors.
