Beating the Odds as a Woman in Business [webinar]

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.
