The Fix: Women Transforming Venture Capital, May 19, 2021


Women and persons of color are underrepresented in the venture capital ecosystem. Less than 3% of VC funding go to women-led startups, only 1% of VC-backed founders are Black, and less than 2% are Latinx. And the diversity issue for VC’s is no better.

Join Silicon Valley Forum at their kickoff event in their Women Who Invest Forum where their panel will discuss the changes needed to drive the transformation of investing structures to propel funding for women and underrepresented founders, and advance gender equality in venture capital.
