I’m Anu Duggal, the founding partner of Female Founders Fund, the first early-stage fund for female founders.
Before starting Female Founders Fund in 2014, I spent time in the culinary world, attending cooking school in France and later opening the first wine bar in Mumbai. I later co-founded Exclusively.In, a flash-sale site for fashion, jewelry, and home décor by Indian artisans, and sold to Myntra.com in 2012.
I’ve had the honor of being listed in Fortune’s “40 Under 40” list and Crain’s “Notable Women in Tech” list. I’ve also been included in Business Insider’s “Ultimate List of Female Startup Investors” and “Top 4 Venture Firms Investing in Women.”
I’ve made appearances on The TODAY Show, Bloomberg TV, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC Squawk Alley, Fortune, Inc, Yahoo! Finance and host my own podcast “The Two Percent”.
I’ve lived all over the world including India, Hong Kong, Manila, Tokyo, and New York and in addition to my passion for uplifting and supporting female founders, my favorite hobbies include cooking and interior design.
