Give a Girl a Dime!
Increasing Funding to Women Entrepreneurs

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST
Women have a more difficult time accessing venture funding than their male counterparts.  According to the National Venture Capital Association's annual survey, women's access to venture funding dropped from 3% to 2% in 2022.

This panel of experts in tech start-up fundraising provides a 2-dimensional view - from the perspective of the entrepreneur and the funder, with thoughts on how to change this trend.  Will also explore some of the opportunities and challenges in the years ahead for investment funding.
