About this event

Growing a startup is challenging – uniquely so for female founders, who secured only 2% of venture capital in the U.S. in 2021. How do you Show Up knowing the odds are stacked against you? How do you, as a leader, transition from Entrepreneur to "Storyteller-in-Chief" and sell your vision to unlock opportunities with investors? What does it take to commit to your personal growth and how does that growth directly impact the growth of your organization?
