About Ingeborg Investments
Ingeborg Investments is founded and funded by Olivia Walton. The investment platform is dedicated to achieving top tier returns by investing in female founders, funders, and leaders. Our mission is to create a long-term, self-sustaining investment platform that proves investing in women is smart business. Through this strategy, we seek to leverage investment capital to bend the arc of opportunity, access, and outcomes for female consumers, professionals, and asset managers.
Our team is connected by a shared commitment to improve outcomes for women in the U.S. by leveraging investment capital. As generalist investors, we are committed to providing capital to female-led startups building in five core areas: career, financial security, women’s health, motherhood, and better living. We evaluate investment opportunities based on a framework we call “the full female experience.” Through this lens, we invest in opportunities that fill systemic gaps in opportunity, access, equity, and experience for women while demonstrating venture-scale potential.
The core strategy focuses on direct investments into women-led, early-stage, venture-backed startups. It is complemented by a broader portfolio diversification strategy that also includes investments into later-stage women-led companies, funds, or ventures across other asset classes, including but not limited to venture capital funds and private equity funds.
