In 2005, four successful businesswomen launched Texas Women Ventures (TWV) to tap into the opportunity within the women’s business community. Valerie Freeman, Cynthia Pharr Lee, Whitney Johns Martin, and Carol Nichols sought to use their investment and entrepreneurial experience to help women-owned and women-led businesses reach their full potential; furthermore, they wished to provide a place for women to learn about investing in private equity.
Today, the Texas Women Ventures family of funds is managed by TWV Capital and has grown to over $25 million in capital and more than 100 investors/advisors. TWV Capital offers innovative capital solutions for women-owned and women-led companies with revenues between $10 million and $100 million. TWV Capital can add both significant amounts of capital and substantial resources to help companies achieve a new level of success.
