San Antonio Startup week is a celebration of entrepreneurs and local leaders in the San Antonio area. Kerry Rupp spoke on the panel, “Leveraging Gender Diversity for Financial Gain”.
In study after study, companies with more gender diverse teams have been shown to outperform financially. Yet the funding levels for women-led startups are still abysmal (2-3% of venture-backed startups have a woman CEO, and only 17% of venture-backed startups have even a single woman on the executive team). How can women entrepreneurs leverage their advantages and mitigate the challenges in fundraising? Hear from women entrepreneurs, investors & startup leaders about how you can change the landscape – and make more money by doing so. The magic here is in the diversity, so this session is not intended for women only.
