Dear Community members,
About Women Funding Women – A new series of gatherings co-hosted by Dell and Springboard Enterprises and partnering with CATAAlliance, Women in Tech (CanWIT) coming to cities across the globe to talk about the experiences of women investing in women and to spark a global network that invests in and promotes high growth businesses led by women.
Worldwide Tour – We launch in Brooklyn, NY, second stop – Toronto – then on to Amsterdam, Paris, Austin, Sydney, and Tokyo.
Program – We want to foster a global community that supports and invests in women and have conceived of a program that highlights the successes as well as promotes investment opportunities and connections among investors and entrepreneurs. We’ll feature insights from an investor and an entrepreneur who have successfully completed an investment, followed by presentations from three growth stage entrepreneurs and crowd-sourced audience feedback and connections.
A recent Harvard Business School study concluded that “having no female partners makes VC firms less likely to invest in female-founded or female-led firms. But what much of the VC world might not realize, is that female-led firms may have a higher rate of return on average than male-led firms.”
Join us in Toronto to be part of the conversation on why women (funding women) is good business.
Women Funding Women – Toronto
When: Monday, January 15
Time: 5:30 pm – 9 pm
