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.
