Education Session No. 1163
Venture Capital Funders and Female Founders

Hosted by The Connecticut Education Committee

Female founders receive less than 3% of US venture capital funding. Hear what it takes for a start-up's founder to catch the eye of a fund and secure the money she needs.

Get an insider's view of venture capital investing from both sides of the table. Learn the criteria that venture capitalists use as yardsticks when evaluating startups for potential funding. Re-live the ups and downs of soliciting capital to launch and grow a fledgling business.

Should female founders primarily target those venture capital funds that support women entrepreneurs or should they compete with everyone in the broader market?

Amanda Eilian, Co-Founder of _able Partners, a venture capital fund focused on funding early stage startups in the healthy living and lifestyle space, and Karen Behnke, founder of Juice Beauty, maker of organic skin care and makeup products, share their perspectives.

Please send your questions to by Tuesday, June 2, 2020 or you may submit them during the webinar.
