Our Investment Focus

Investment Criteria: MAA/WCC uses the following criteria in selecting companies to present their investment opportunities to its members:



  • Early stage companies that offer exceptional opportunities for high returns on investment.

  • A compelling, well-articulated strategy for capturing and defending a significant market share.

  • Prefer applicants with version 1.0 of product/service that have some paying customers.

  • A business opportunity with the potential for rapid, scalable growth within a reasonable time frame. (Revenues of $20M+ within 5-7 years)

  • Proprietary technology, early market lead, or other strong barriers to entry.

  • A strong management team to execute the business plan - with relevant and successful experience. A team with a desire for mentoring and coaching.

  • A credible exit strategy for investors. 

  • Midwest location preferred. A company outside the region must have a lead investor in their geography.

  • A reasonable valuation that fits within the risk/reward expectations of our members.

  • Women's Capital Connection requires a female CEO or a female in a C-level position within the management team who has equity and is involved in day-to-day operations of the company.
