Tentative date for event. May 16th 2019.
Women founders struggle every day to get funded.
- Only 2.2% venture capital is deployed to all female founding teams or startup with solo female founder[i].
- Women-run startups generated 78 cents in revenue for every dollar raised, compared to 31 cents for men according to Boston Consulting group[ii].
- Woman co-founder teams performed 63% better than all-male teams, as measured by First Round Capital [iii].
- Women make up only 7% of the venture capital and private equity workforce
Many studies have shown women-run companies have generated great return for investors.
