Our Response to the Pandemic
We’re transforming the 2020 Women Startup Challenge at Google in New York City to ensure everyone's health and safety. In its place, Women Who Tech is launching a brand-new Women Startup Grants Program to continue funding game-changing, women-led startups virtually during this pandemic.
We will be awarding $10,000 equity-free grants on a rolling basis to women-led startups, with the first winner chosen from our 2020 Women Startup Challenge application process, which closed May 31.
The COVID-19 Tech Challenge Grant will open July 2020.
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.
About 40% of women founders who set out to raise capital faced some form of harrassment
Of those women, 65% were propositioned for sex in exchange for funding.
