Funded Female Founders: How to Level the Playing Field

Join us online to learn how to empower female entrepreneurs and ensure they have equal access to funding opportunities in the business world

Event description

The share of funding secured by female founders is unfairly and disproportionately low, a state of affairs that has remained unchanged for many years despite advances made in other areas of gender equality in business. This unfortunate reality has subjected femtech founders to increased hurdles and barriers when attempting to raise capital, despite the fact that studies show female founders produce higher returns on investment.

Why does this gender bias exist in venture capital?

Experienced entrepreneur and fundraiser David B. Horne has made it his mission to level the uneven playing field that female and under-represented entrepreneurs face when raising capital. As the author of Funded Female Founders: How to Traverse the Uneven Playing Field and Secure Funding to Grow Your Business, David will share his research, findings, and practical tips with founders who are trying to fundraise in today’s complicated environment. Join us for an exciting discussion where David shares proven strategies for raising different types of funding, the experiences of female founders who have successfully overcome gender bias while raising capital, and how we can work towards a more equal and equitable fundraising world.
