Did you know… Only 18 percent of all startups have a female founder and that only 10 percent of Series A startups had a female founder? In fact, of the $114 billion given to these startups, 94 percent of it never sees a female founder. And did you know… Women-owned businesses added 340,000 new jobs between 2007 and 2015 while men-owned businesses cut 1.2 million? How about this one… Among the most successful companies, men begin their businesses with six times as much capital as women do.
