Meet the Even Capital Team
By women for women
Launched in 2021, Even Capital is the brain-child of New Zealand entrepreneur and investor duo Anna Stuck and Sarah Park.
Inspired by their own observations and experiences as influential women in the business and investment world, Even Capital was founded on the distinct ambition to even out the balance when it comes to giving female-led / female-founded businesses the opportunity to access the funding they deserve, yet often miss out on.
Steering away from narrow-focus sectors and free to make nimble yet robust decisions around investments without a cast of investors and consultants, Anna and Sarah are at the forefront of female-founded, female-funded and female-focussed capital fund investment for growth-stage businesses in Asia Pacific.
Leveraging their own money to give Even Capital lift-off, investments in pioneering technology and diagnostic businesses are already underway and more are waiting in the wings as word spreads about the undeniable impact and importance of Even Capital’s approach to investment.

We match our commitment to investing in female entrepreneurs who are creating solutions for a better future for all, by donating 5% of our distributable proceeds to the Clare Foundation when we successfully exit an investment. Clare is a progressive philanthropic foundation that wants more for our people and planet; just like us.
