Women in business: Addressing the ‘startup’ gender gap – Gulf Business
Less funding: The business pitching process is an extremely nerve-wracking activity for every startup founder. As I had mentioned before, though there is evidence that women are capable of leading and running a business, investors hesitate to invest in a business venture established by women entrepreneurs. According to Crunchbase, in 2020, all-female founding teams got 2.4 per cent of all venture capital dollars in the US, down from a high of 3.4 per cent in 2019. In turn, women have to rely on familial support or referrals. You can raise the capital your business needs by learning to ask exactly what you need.
