our story

Anne Bakx and Noa Leijdesdorff met in while interviewing in the competitive investment banking world of the City of London. They saw that there is a clear need for the development of female talent. Both from female participants, who look for a place where ambitious young women can truly participate and grow, and from corporates, who are increasingly on the hunt for female talent. In 2019 they founded Dutchess Capital.


“With Dutchess Capital we aim to create a nurturing home for female talent. We launched Dutchess Capital as an immersive investment program, where participants develop top quality finance and investment decision making skills and learn how to express their view on the financial markets.”
