About Event

This is the first of five webinars Startup Canada will host, as part of the Startup Women 2023 program. These webinars aim to support the business development of women-identifying entrepreneurs and give them the tools and know-how to navigate the early stages of their entrepreneurial journey. 

There is a growing number of women-led investment funds in Canada that are specifically interested in funding women founders, a group often grossly underinvested in. Research shows that when a woman is at the table, a fund is twice as likely to invest in a women-led start-up. Meet some of the women leaders who sit at these funding tables.
