40% of women founders who set out to raise capital faced some form of harassment.
Of those women, 59% were propositioned for sex in exchange for funding.
Our Response to the Pandemic
We transformed the 2020 Women Startup Challenge into the Women Who Tech Startup Grants Program to continue funding game-changing, women-led startups virtually during this pandemic. We are awarding Innovation Grants of $10,000 and Impact Grants of $3,000, equity-free, on a rolling basis to women-led startups.
Meet the Jury
Only 2.8% of venture capital funding goes to women-led startups.
We are crushing that dismal stat.
Women Who Tech is disrupting a culture and an economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women entrepreneurs to access capital.
