2017 Bowery Capital Gender Study

  1. 1. Bowery Capital 2017 Gender Study Research Overview Bowery Capital catalogued the gender composition for its team, advisors, and major event speakers since the inception of the fund in May 2013 and used this data to understand the gender diversity across all groups. This information was gathered by existing internal data from 2013 through the end of Q2 2017. We will release the information on an annual basis every Q2 going forward to keep our team honest about how diverse we are. Note that due to data loss we were not able to pull all of our quarterly event information including attendee diversity. Full-Time Team Construction The Bowery Capital full-time team consists of investment professionals and seasoned experts that make up what is internally and externally called the Investment Team and the Acceleration Team. Team members are paid, full- time, and share in the profit of the firm. As of this writing the team sits at five full-time employees of which three are male and two are female. Since inception, Bowery Capital has had seven total employees of which four are male and three are female. The current full-time team is 60% male and 40% female while the total team since inception is 57% male and 43%. Part-Time Team Construction The Bowery Capital part-time team consists of three groups of senior industry leaders that we internally and externally call Venture Partners, Senior Advisors, and Revenue Council. Team members are not paid, not full- time, and do share in the profit of the firm. As of this writing Bowery Capital has four Venture Partners and four Revenue Council Members. Our Senior Advisors are no longer active. Since inception, Bowery Capital has had 13 total members of this group of part-time employees of which ten are male and three are female. The current part-time team is 62% male and 38% female while the total team since inception is 57% male and 43%. 60% 40% Gender Study: FT Team Men Women 62% 38% Gender Study: PT Team Men Women
  2. 2. Updated: 07/17/17 Full & Part-Time Team Construction The combination of the full and part-time team makes up the individuals that spend their day to day working on Bowery Capital. We believe this is the best metric to track for our firm. The current full and part-time team is 62% male and 38% female while the total full and part-time team since inception is 70% male and 43%. Quarterly Event Construction Bowery Capital hosts large events on a quarterly basis in New York City and San Francisco. These events tie specifically to the areas our Acceleration Team cares the most: the revenue components of a startup. These events are a Customer Success Summit, a Sales Summit, a Marketing Summit, and an Operations & Finance Summit. Speaker diversity is something we have tracked over time. Since inception, we have had a total of 153 speakers of which 134 have been male and 19 have been female. This translates to 88% for male and 12% for female. As a firm we do not track attendee diversity. Company Founder Team Construction Bowery Capital has invested in 27 companies since its founding in 2013. The founding teams of these companies have ranged from one to four individuals. Since inception, the team has invested in a total of 50 founders of which none are female. 62% 38% Gender Study: FT & PT Team Men Women 88% 12% Gender Study: Events Men Women 100% 0% Gender Study: Founders Men Women
