About this Event
A study by Morgan Stanley estimates that VC’s are missing out on nearly a trillion dollars by not investing in diverse founders. Across industries, female entrepreneurs continue to face challenges in obtaining funding and getting the necessary training and support required for successful entrepreneurship. Globally the VC landscape saw only $38.9 billion invested (roughly 14% of venture deals) in companies with a female founder.
