About this event

Female venture partners make 9% of the industry and out of which only 20% of female Partners invest at the growth stage and 37% at Series B rounds (CNBC 2018). As the struggle to raise funds becomes harder, we have fewer women to diversify the decision. Venture Capital has notoriously been known as a "Boy Club", yet diversity in this space is imperative as it sets the tech ecosystem.

Join us as we hear from both sides of the investment coin, those looking for funding and those providing the funding. We'll learn the struggles they have gone through, the challenges they face and what the industry is doing to cause a shift towards #EachForEqual. Each of these female trailblazers will share their stories of How She Got There.
