Reset Connect London 2024
The share of venture capital investment directed toward female founders has stagnated every year since 2011. With funding being the quintessential factor of success for any startup, this equity gap creates a lopsided chance of survival for early-stage start-ups and scale-ups with female founders. Funding disparities between male and female founders also pose huge barriers to entry for female innovators, changemakers, and thought-leaders. Listen in on this session as we hear from both female founders who have surmounted adversity in the investment community and female-led start-ups focused on sustainability.
