The Ongoing Issue of Funding Women Entrepreneurs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There have been persistent discussions in the entrepreneurship and technology spaces in the past several years about the need to increase funding for women-led startups.
However, an increase in the actual numbers and dollars isn't exactly being realized outside of a handful of high-profile cases.
With that in mind, most of us can agree that funding more women entrepreneurs is important and seems to be supported philosophically, but there are clear hurdles that are keeping it from being realized and actualized.
This panel will discuss the current state of investing in women-led startups and why it's important to do so, and point to some of the existing problems and solutions.
We feel it's important for everyone - male or female - to join in this conversation.
