Join the conversation on how to fund and scale your woman-owned business like a boss.
More women than ever are running their own businesses, with the number of women-owned firms growing at more than double the rate of all firms in the U.S. Despite that, according to a Harvard Business Review study, in 2019, just 2.8% of all VC funding went to women-led startups and in 2020, that fell to 2.3%.
Now, in the wake of COVID-19, the outlook is even more challenging for women entrepreneurs. New research conducted by FreshBooks confirms that businesses owned by women are, in fact, the hardest hit, taking 3 times longer to rebound from pandemic downturns.
This webinar amplifies the conversation on gender equality, funding, and growth for women-owned businesses.
In this Webinar, You’ll Learn:
- Tactics on how to approach venture capital and securing funding
- Tips for pitching your business to the right people in the right way
- Tools on how to be an ally in bridging the gap between men- vs women-led businesses
