Halogen Ventures raises $10 million for women entrepreneurs



Halogen founder Jesse Draper, creator of the “The Valley Girl Show,” has closed a $10 million fund to get more seed capital to women-led startups, including Eloquii, a plus-size clothing company, and Werk, a job site for flexible work.

Most of the fund’s investors are women, including Cindy Whitehead, who created the “pink pill” sex drug and formed the Pinkubator, a women-focused accelerator.

Halogen isn’t alone; other funds financing women-led businesses are raising capital and venture firms are bringing on more women. (See: “Venture capital starts to woman up.”) And don’t forget this list of 58 venture funds focused on women.
