It's time to squash biases, gain knowledge about investing, learn how to articulate yourself and your ideas, and connect with like-minded women.
Welcome to a virtual event created to both educate women on how to invest in and support female entrepreneurs, and to teach female entrepreneurs the ins and outs of seeking funding.
with startup founders: Nekita Sisk of U2LYZE and Jean Anne Booth of UnaliWear.
from Investor Perspective
with panel of seasoned investors and entrepreneurs.
90% of venture capital decision-makers are men, who in turn, invest 86% of their capital in all-male teams.
Angels invest about $24 billion each year. Women-led companies are now 19% of startups funded by angels ---- a big improvement over 2004 when they were just 3%.
The $3 billion fem-tech industry is expected to reach $60 billion by 2027. This illustrates the critical role of both early-stage and later-stage capital, and it shines a light on the need to identify, fund and nurture innovations in large numbers so that great companies can emerge. This capital determines who will be the leaders and who will sit on the board of the future. (Jo Ann Corkran, Loretta McCarthy, and Peggy Wallace Co-CEOs of Golden Seeds) Statistics Source
