Women Investing in Women
October 24th, 2018 | 8:30AM - 2:00PM
Women entrepreneurs continue to face significant disadvantages in business despite studies showing that their companies actually outperform all-male companies by 63%. Incredibly, female business owners receive only 3% of venture capital investments, significantly limiting the growth of their companies. Female founders of color receive a mere fraction of that amount. We at FUND Conference are determined to help change this.
To kick off FUND Conference in Chicago this Fall, it is our honor to host the second Women Investing in Women (WiW) event. This exclusive event will feature keynotes, fireside discussions, and panels that focus on advancing women-led companies and bridging the unacceptable gender gap in business. A working lunch will match attendees with the resources they need to grow their business. This is an opportunity to create powerful relationships and networks to generate deal-flow for women-owned companies and the investors, service providers and communities who support them.
Exclusive passes to this one-day event will be offered to all exhibiting entrepreneurs and investors. Only 100 tickets will be available for general attendee ticket holders. Following the overwhelming success of our first WiW event in Austin, we anticipate that this limited-seating event will sell out prior to the week of show.
Bridging the gender gap affects everyone in business...everyone is encouraged to attend and to help move the needle together.
To attend, first secure your ticket to FUND Conference here. During the checkout process, you will be asked if you plan to attend WiW. Upon selecting “yes”, a short questionnaire will be emailed to you that will allow us to better pair you for WiW's networking session. Completion of this questionnaire will then secure your spot, and a confirmation email will be sent to you.
Should you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you at this very special event.
