Our filter is WOMEN FIRST.
Whether run, written, directed or created, it has to start with her.
Through an impact investment model, SEGAL NYC partners with early to mid-stage companies founded by women for women. Our partnerships include a National Women’s Soccer League team and a digital fitness startup, among others.
Our media and entertainment division has produced and developed immersive and experiential events, documentaries, feature films and nine critically acclaimed Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, with a combined 17 Tony Award nominations — all with the aim of centering women’s experiences in the cultural conversation.
How Can Segal NYC Partner with You?
Whether developing a feature film exploring the unrecognized contributions of women in some of the world's most important corporations, investing in a women’s sports franchise with Mia Hamm, or partnering with female-funded businesses to fill market needs, our team's business development, Emmy and Tony Award-winning production experience, financial acumen and exceptional pre-market foresight and market insights are unparalleled.
With connections across multiple industries and a deep passion to make things happen for women-led businesses, Segal NYC brings a wealth of intelligence and resources to the table.

Most recently she is a founding investor in Angel City FC, named “one of the most high-profile U.S. professional sports teams” by Forbes, alongside World Cup winners Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach, and founded by Natalie Portman, Kara Nortman and Alexis Ohanian. The team is dedicated to equal pay, equal sponsorship and changing the pitch.
