Backstage Capital is thrilled to announce our campaign with Republic.

Investing in underestimated founders is more than good business sense, it’s a deeply held conviction that what we all do together will

change the world.

Update: we made history on Feb 1, reaching $1M on our Reg CF on Republic in less than 9 hours! If you missed it, sign up to our waitlist and we will alert you when we open up more allocation!


About Backstage Capital

Less than 10% of all venture capital deals go to women, People of Color, and LGBTQ founders. Other VCs see this as a pipeline problem. We see it as the biggest opportunity in investment.

Backstage Capital has invested in more than 150 companies led by underrepresented founders.
