To Seek Funding or Not to Seek Funding, That Is The Question @ATLAS Workbase - 500 Mercer St
According to TechCrunch, an embarrassing 2.2% of venture capital went to all-women founding teams or solo female founders in 2018 and only 10% went to startups with a least one woman founder, as reported by Recode. Given these statistics, is it worth the effort for female founders to seek venture capital? Join this session to hear from company founders and current investors as they discuss the upsides and downsides of seeking funding.
