Democratizing Access to Capital for Female Founders

Fortune Magazine has reported that female founders received only 2.2% of the total capital money invested in 2018 by venture capitalists even though it has been said that women-led startups have a 35% higher return on investment. This panel focuses on democratization for access to capital outside of the traditional venture capital sector, specifically addressing funding opportunities through crowdfunding, digital currency generation, female-focused funds, angels and government grants.
