“The financial system chronically underserving women is not a new phenomenon. Last year, female-founded companies raised just 2.7 percent of the venture capital pie. For founders of color, that figure is less than 1 percent. According to DigitalUndivided, Black-founded companies have raised just .06 percent of the $424.7 billion of total tech venture funding since 2009.” – Julia Steele, Director of Marketing and Communications, IFundWomen.
IFundWomen aims to change the disheartening numbers game by, according to Steele, “working tirelessly to expand access to capital for women-owned businesses so they can launch and scale more successful, lucrative businesses.”
