The Startup Founders’ Guide to Creating and Using a Parental Leave Policy
Paid family leave policies are complex. Cost, capacity and resources, and the varied needs of your employees’ families are all factors in building effective and equitable policies. This is uncharted territory for many startups — particularly if you’re an early stage startup.
In partnership with Springbank, we've built a guide that takes some of the guesswork out of parental leave policy. We consulted with a number of startup founders and CEOs, VC partners, policymakers, and HR experts to share the best practices, gaps, and growth opportunities they uncovered during the development of their own paid family leave policies.
More Women Became VC Partners Than Ever Before In 2019 But 65% of Venture Firms Still Have Zero Female Partners
Our All Raise data team crunched the numbers on new female partners at VC firms in 2019 and discovered that it was a historic year. According to our analysis of U.S. venture capital firms with over $25M AUM (excluding life science and corporate VC firms): In 2019, 54 women became VC partners or general partners for the first time, representing the highest number on record and a 32% increase since the previous year. Despite these notable advancements, the industry still has a long way to go: 65% of VC firms still don’t have a single female partner or GP. For an in-depth look at where these newly minted female partners came from — their previous roles and geographic locations — and additional data points, check out our blog post.

Against The Odds: Underrepresented Founders Report Positive Outlook on Business Despite Extra COVID-19 Pressures
We wanted to investigate how entrepreneurs are navigating the pandemic and identify ways that the tech industry can avoid exacerbating existing inequities (of which we know there are far too many) and continue dismantling those structural obstacles. We surveyed over 300 early-stage startup founders based in the U.S. between June 16 – July 6, 2020 to understand their experiences during COVID-19 and asked questions about their business operations, financial position, and changing caregiving responsibilities. This is the first in a series of reports we’ll be publishing as the pandemic and associated recession continue to unfold in the months ahead. As COVID-19 creates dramatic shifts in all aspects of our lives, the ways companies are founded and funded are also due for a “new normal.”
