Women Investing in Women: A chat with Founders and VCs

Female founders secured only 2% of venture capital in the U.S. in 2021, the smallest share since 2016. Meet some of the women who are taking action to create change. This panel of women investors strategically choose to invest in women. Hear more about their strategy from the investors themselves. Founders will join their investors on stage to talk about how these women investors do business differently.
