Founders + Fund(Her)s // Winter 2023

In 2021, women raised just 2% of the record $330 billion in venture capital.
Of that 2%, Black and Latinx women hovered around 0.05% each, while an estimated 0.71% went to Asian women and Indigenous Americans raised approximately .004% of known capital in the United States, according to Crunchbase.
Through Q3 of 2022, women raised just 1.9%. We have work to do, and it starts now. 

Founders + Fund(Her)s seeks to bring together early-stage (one to five years of operations) women and non-binary founders from historically underrepresented and/or under-resourced communities looking to gain exposure and raise capital, with funders looking to advise, support and  invest.

During each Founders + Fund(Her)s session, founders will have up to five (5) minutes to pitch their business followed by a brief Q&A with the panelists of local angel investors, serial entrepreneurs, and business leaders. In advance of pitching to the investor panel, each Founder will receive a one-on-one coaching session from a start-up coach including feedback on her deck and presentation  style.

Participants will receive constructive feedback from the panel – crucial to any up-and-coming business – as well as introductions to relevant contacts, and possibly even funding.


BasBlue welcomes members to join the Founders + Fund(Her)s audience. The event will begin with networking and continental breakfast followed by the founder presentations.


Members may bring one guest.
