Engage-It-Forward: Women Who Launch Kickoff Event
October 8, 2014 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Women represent less than 15% of startup founders, 22% of angel investors and 11% of investing partners at venture firms. Yet, Kaufmann Foundation research found that women-led high tech start-ups “achieve 35% higher return on investment, and – when venture-backed — generate 12% higher revenue than male-owned tech companies.” Some attribute the gender gap in entrepreneurship to a lack of confidence, and others to social norms.
We would like to introduce Women Who Launch, a new group aiming to spark an inclusive conversation about gender equality in entrepreneurship and transform these ideas into action for aspiring female founders, funders and team members.
We invite you to participate in our Kickoff Women Who Launch Conversation on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at Arbor Brewing Company.
