JUMP CONCLUSION

Disruption Ventures focuses primarily on early-stage companies, evident from their numerous seed investments and select series A rounds. They prioritize technology-oriented businesses, especially in software like SaaS and data analytics, along with consumer-facing sectors such as apps, e-commerce, and healthcare, recognizing their rapid growth potential. While based in Canada, they also invest in tech hubs like San Francisco, often participating alongside other investors rather than leading investments. With a focus on female-led businesses, Disruption Ventures seeks promising startups with at least one female founder in software, data analytics, or consumer tech, emphasizing strong growth prospects.

Casual Beauty Founder Fit but extremely pro-women and diversity, and beauty solving a big consumer problem that intersects around health and wellness, with data play, is totally worth a pitch.
