- Start Date:
- 2 awards of $1,000
- Look, guys. This is business; nothing personal.
Let’s talk numbers -- just the cold, hard facts.
Did you know… Female founders outperform their male peers?
Have you heard… Female CEOs in the Fortune 1000 drive three times the returns as S&P 500 enterprises run predominantly by men?
Unbelievably… Only 18 percent of all startups have a female founder, and when talking Series A, only 10 percent are female-led. In fact, of the $114 billion in funding given to these startups, only 6 percent of it makes its way to a female-founded startup.
And did you know… Women-owned businesses added 340,000 new jobs between 2007 and 2015 while men-owned businesses cut 1.2 million?
How about this one… Among the most successful companies, men begin their businesses with six times as much capital as women do!
And have you read… Less than five percent of VC dollars go to women-led businesses?
Well, we have, and we believe them to be true. That’s why we’re eager to offer a scholarship exclusively for women who want to execute on their business ideas.
- Any female high-school or college student, who wants to start her own online business.
