Instead of seeking out companies built by women, Brava founder Nathalie Molina Nino funds companies that are being built for women. "It's not just about investing in women in the corner office. Ninety-nine percent of women will never be in a corner office," she says. "I want to prioritize women in factories. I want to prioritize all women." So if a startup was to approach her with a credible cure for breast cancer, she would invest regardless of the gender makeup of the team. Plus, she says, when backing companies that don't have any women at the top, that's ultimately a ratio she believes she can alter. "I can't change the business model," she says. "I can fix the diversity of the leadership team or of the board."
