In 2021, women only received 2% of all venture capital funding…the smallest share since 2016. We have work to do, and it starts now. Founders + Fund(Her)s seeks to bring together early-stage female founders looking to raise capital and gain exposure, with funders looking to advise, support and invest. During each Founders + Fund(Her)s session, founders will have up to four (4) 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 45-min 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. One of the Founders will walk away with a $5,000 grant courtesy of BasBlue.
