Course Details

Are you contemplating starting a business or are planning to expand your existing one? Do you need additional funding?

Investors for female entrepreneurs are a great way to accomplish your professional goals, but do you know how to choose the right one for your startup?

The only thing harder than being an entrepreneur is being a female entrepreneur. Despite all the blood, sweat, and tears that get poured into a start-up by its founder, statistics indicate that women entrepreneurs still start their companies with 50% percent less capital than their male counterparts.

In 2019, only 6.5% of the funding raised among the top 150 funded start-ups in India went to women-founded/co-founded start-ups.

But these numbers only tell part of the story. Women-owned businesses are still in the minority, and the hurdles faced by women who have embraced entrepreneurship are vast and often very different from those experienced by their male counterparts.
