Why Portfolia Funds?

We designed our funds the way we want to invest: With a special interest in appealing to women who own half of the wealth, buy the majority of products, but rarely invest in startup companies.


How Our Funds Work

Members select a fund in their area of interest. Our Venture Partners review hundreds of companies from across the world, selecting their top 10 investments for the fund. The diligence and selection process is transparent and educational. It is an engaging experience that lets us learn the investing process when and if it works in your schedule.


Fund Features


Learn to Invest

As a Portfolia member, we invest your money on your behalf -- there's nothing you need to do. But if you want to 'learn the ropes' -- source companies, watch founder pitches, learn deal terms or diligence processes -- you'll be surrounded by a supportive community.


Industry-Focused Funds


Each fund is led by a national investing team experienced in that specific space. Members invest in funds aligned with their areas of interest and passion. For maximum diversification, members can invest in multiple Portfolia funds.
