Co-Founder and General Partner, Leslie Goldman Tepper, will discuss the fund’s diligence and impact measurement processes and lead a conversation with some of Artemis’s top performing founders about how they integrate and track certain SDGs.
The Artemis Fund is a venture capital firm on a mission to democratize and modernize wealth creation. Led by Ms. Tepper and her partners, Diana Murakhovshaya and Stephanie Campbell, the Artemis team believes the future of financial services and commerce will be written by diverse entrepreneurs. The Artemis Fund leads seed rounds in disruptive fintech, e-commerce tech, and care-tech companies founded and led by women.
Logic.Wiki in partnership with UN SDSN, SDG Academy, & NOVA Impact will highlight The Artemis Fund and a few of their amazing founders that have integrated Impact, Logic, and the SDGs into their strategies for this upcoming World Logic Day 2023.
Together the Artemis partners, their team, and their founders are leading the way in a variety of industries to champion gender equality, UN SDG 5, while also integrating and measuring other UN SDGs in the work they do as funders and executors. Join us to learn more about their commitment to impact and its role in creating alpha for investors.
Goodfynd: Goodfynd is a vertical B2B fintech company created to help mobile businesses scale. Over 1,000+ businesses with no permanent location trust Goodfynd to enable their payments and operations. Mobile businesses are chronically underbanked and have access to few financing options. Within Goodfynd's initial customer base, food trucks, 70% of these business owners are diverse (largely immigrant, black, and brown populations). Working in alignment with UN SDGs 8. Decent Work and Economic Growth, and 10. Reduced Inequalities, Goodfynd gives these business owners a budget-friendly solution custom-built for their needs enabling them to build long-lasting, sustainable businesses.
DRESSX: We are facing a crisis of overproduction and waste, and the fashion industry is the second most significant polluter in the world. Today, DRESSX is the largest fashion multi-brand store of digital fashion collections from the most well-known brands and 3D designers. By providing the infrastructure and distribution for digital fashion, DRESSX is building for a future where we produce less, produce more sustainably, and sometimes do not produce at all.
Digital clothing eliminates waste and chemicals during production and minimizes fashion's carbon footprint. DRESSX is an active partner for the UN SDGs, and the business directly impacts SDGs 6. Clean Water and Sanitation, 9. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructures, 12. Responsible Consumption and Production, 13. Climate Action. These are the garments of the future.
Work and Mother: Work & Mother is a network of fully equipped lactation suites that give working mothers a clean and professional space to pump, decreasing employee attrition and making it easy for employers to comply with FLSA regulations.
Mothers make up a large and integral part of the workforce, yet few resources or systems are in place to support them. As many as 43% of new mothers leave their jobs within one year of having a baby, and employers suffer from losing highly qualified talent. Additionally, women's earning potential takes a significant hit when they leave the workforce. Of moms who work full time, only 10% are still breastfeeding at 6 months; however, of working mothers who have had access to a Work & Mother Suite, 90% are still breastfeeding at the 6 month mark, and 50% at 12 months. By making it easier for women to stay in the workplace, Work & Mother drives progress towards UN SDGs 3. Good Health and Wellbeing, 5. Gender Equality, 8. Decent Work and Economic Growth, and 10. Reduced Inequalities.
