(Re)Introducing: Women Who Launch

Join us for our 2017 Kick-Off event on January 30th!

Women represent less than 15% of startup founders, 22% of angel investors and 11% of investing partners at venture firms. Yet, Kaufmann Foundation research found that women-led high tech start-ups “achieve 35% higher return on investment, and – when venture-backed — generate 12% higher revenue than male-owned tech companies.” Some attribute the gender gap in entrepreneurship to a lack of confidence, and others to social norms.

We would like to (re)introduce Women Who Launch, a group founded in 2014 aiming to spark an inclusive conversation about gender equality in entrepreneurship and transform these ideas into action for aspiring female founders, funders and team members.

Our Vision: Women Who Launch aspires to create a gender equal entrepreneurial ecosystem. We empower women to engage in entrepreneurship, whether as founders, funders, or team members.

Our Mission: We inspire women through real-world startup stories. We build critical entrepreneurial skills through workshops. Finally, we create support networks through community meetups.

We invite you to participate in our first event of the year, the Women Who Launch: 2017 Kick-Off. Join us for an evening of networking over appetizers and inspiration from our guest speaker, entrepreneur Lisa McLaughlin, CEO & Co-Founder of Workit Health.
