When a woman starts a company and looks around the startup scene, at first glance they feel like they are different than the people around them and often don’t feel as welcome as their male counterparts.
Our goal is to showcase those Investors, Founders, and Supporters in the community that are helping women owned businesses, are investing in female founders, and are starting companies themselves.
The first way we are realizing this goal is to host an event where investors present introduce companies they have funded to pitch their successes to the community. We will also have a panel discussion between investors and female Founders.
You have supported the community and helped female founders in growing their companies. There are more emerging female founders and we want to showcase you as their first choice.
You are the torch bearers of this community and supported others in the journey. You are the ones who got immense support and encouragement from this community. We give you a chance to thank this community and also share your experiences with emerging female founders. You also get an opportunity to identify resources for your own company.
