There are 3 Reasons Women-Owned Businesses Fail to Grow
Lack of Funding
Lack of Support
Lack of Confidence
Historically, Silicon Valley has been a male dominated startup ecosystem and while the spotlight is often on gender bias, discrepancies continue to exist in funding. In 2019 TechCrunch released an article “US VC investment in female founders hits all-time high” with a headlining percentage of “2.8% of funding for 2019.” Despite many efforts, the startup ecosystem is still lacking in female diversity and female founded companies. It’s time to change this.
This month, in conjunction with the release of the OneValley Female Founder Scholarship program, we will be highlighting 8 female founded startups. Se lected applicants will have the opportunity to pitch their startup to 3 partner level VC’s in front of a live global audience of 500+ investors, industry leaders and entrepreneurs.
