Don't Start with Me: Funding Female-Founded Startups - Part 2
September 27, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Male VCs—obviously most are—are very comfortable now giving female entrepreneurs capital for ‘girl stuff’” (Vivoom). Don’t be fooled. Sexual harassment and discriminatory treatment toward women are not a Silicon Valley-only problem, nor can they be undone by men’s “nice” blogs. Female-founded businesses are out-performing male-started businesses 5 to 1, boosting the US economy by $1.6T. Yet only 2% of funding has gone to women startup founders. What will it take to lift these gender barriers? The experts speak. Adam Quinton, Lucas Point Ventures: “Power’s not given to you. You have to take it” (Beyoncé). Victoria Pettibone, Astia: “You've got only one lift to live. You can either make it chickens**t or chicken salad" (Cousins). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “What has destroyed every previous civilization has been the tendency to the unequal distribution of wealth and power” (Henry George). Join us for Don’t Start with Me: Funding Female-Founded Startups – Part 2.
