Catalyst at Large

Suzanne leads Catalyst at Large and is co-founder of a global initiative called GenderSmart, a community of over 2500+ people dedicated to unlocking “gender-smart” capital at scale and with more impact. She is also obsessed about having more women invest with their values. She was a tech entrepreneur, sold her company in 1998, and has been investing with a gender and environmental/social impact strategy for more than 20 years. Suzanne speaks and writes about this topic all over the world, sits on a number of boards, and loves Invest for Better where she was a founding advisory council member.

“I’m named for 2 great aunts, one was a midwife and the other a business person. I’m the combo of both – I midwife many projects and organisations in impact and gender-smart investing, and believe that business and investing can be a force for positive change. I have so many great values aligned investments – I cant just talk about one ! See partial list on my website at” – Suzanne Biegel.
