Emerging Tech Grants Program Finalists


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 grants up to $20K on a rolling basis to women-led startups.

Women Who Tech's
State of Women In Tech
Read the Report

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.

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.

Our Impact

3500+ startups, 40%+ Women of Color, $80M + Raised by Alumni
