When Women Lead
June 28 @ 12:00pm ET / 9am PT
Replay is available here.

The data doesn't lie. When women lead in business the companies are stronger, the results are more outstanding. Not only do women create better businesses, but they also do it with fewer resources. Research shows that women are building successful businesses in the face of massive challenges. They have access to less cash, smaller networks, and inherent bias from society; however, women generate more revenue, higher return on investment, and create more value for their investors.

Join All Raise CEO, Paige Hendrix Buckner with CNBC Senior Media & Technology Reporter and When Women Lead author Julia Boorstin for a candid conversation about women in tech. During this conversation, Julia will deliver key insights about the unique value proposition of women leaders and actions that both men and women can take to build inclusive businesses that thrive.

The Trillion-Dollar Female Economy

Replay is available here.

As Cake Ventures' whitepaper Finding Alpha: The Trillion Dollar Female Economy recently reported, "Women control or influence over 85% of consumer spending, including healthcare for themselves and their children, consumer retail, household needs, and more. In spite of this market-making influence and purchasing power, women have long been treated as a niche market whose needs can be met by 'shrinking and pinking' products originally designed for men."

Join All Raise CEO Paige Hendrix Buckner and Cake Ventures Managing Partner Monique Woodard as they discuss the key insights from this powerful report and share actionable advice for investors and founders as they think about funding and building for the massive economic power of women.
