The current system of startup funding puts women entrepreneurs at a clear disadvantage. 2017 has seen only 2% of VC funding go to female founders. Last year, the largest VC deal for a female team was $165 million — a stark contrast to that for males, which was $3 billion.
Hence, It’s time ‘we’ join hands, so ‘she’ can fly!”
