Lack of Funding
Access to Education
It’s proven that investing in women creates a better world, and yet they’re not even close to meeting their potential.
Women represent half of the global population, and reinvest 90% of their income into their families and communities, but earn just 10% of the world’s income.
Studies have shown that advancing women’s equality can add between $12-28 trillion to global economic growth. According to UN Women, companies with three or more women in senior management functions score higher in all dimensions of organizational effectiveness, yet just 4% of Fortune 500 companies are led by women.
In startup-land, you’ll find the same results. First Round Capital’s analysis of 300 portfolio companies over ten years showed that startup teams with at least one female founder performed 63 percent better than all male teams, yet around only 4% of women are backed by VC funding.
