The Billion Dollar Fund for Women is a global consortium of venture funds tackling the gender funding gap that has surpassed the US$680mn mark, reaching another key milestone since announcing its launch October 2018 at the annual World Bank Meetings. This achievement highlights the commitment and great work of a range of venture funds from around the world dedicated to gender parity in funding early-stage women-founded companies.

The news was announced at SXSW in Austin, Texas by Co-Founders and Managing Partners, Shelly Porges and Sarah Chen, of TBDFWomen on Friday, March 8th as they kicked off The Billion Dollar Breakfast™ series.

Utilizing the SxSW platform where innovators, investors and other changemakers congregate every year, True Wealth Ventures, a TBDFWomen partner fund, partnered to host TBDFWomen’s first Billion Dollar Breakfast event, on International Women’s Day.
