Coyote Ventures Raises LP investment from Bank of America

Coyote Ventures, a San Francisco, CA-based venture capital firm focused on early-stage women’s health and wellness startups, received an LP investment from Bank of America.

Bank of America is the largest institutional investor in Coyote Ventures Fund I and follows previous investments from The Case for Her and Tripple Family Office.

Led by General Partner Jessica Karr, the firm has already invested in six startups, all of which are focused on catalyzing change by helping the health and wellness industry move towards gender equity.

Coyote Ventures has invested in Wile, a maker of plant-based hormonal wellness products sold at Whole Foods Market and Walgreens nationwide, Hera Biotech, a novel endometriosis diagnostics company. All CEOs in Coyote Ventures portfolio companies are female, and many of the co-founders are BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+.

As an early employee and biochemist at Impossible Foods, Karr worked with startups internationally as an innovation consultant. She founded Coyote Ventures in 2021, which now boasts an all-female deal team and advisor network of doctors, scientists, and healthtech executives.
