According to the Silicon Valley Bank report , 28% of U.S. startups have a female founder and only 14% have a female CEO. While venture capital is their most likely next source of funding regardless of the gender makeup of the founding team, the startups with a female founder are slightly less likely to rely on them for funding. Companies founded solely by women garnered 2.1% of the total capital invested in venture-backed startups in the US .
For the third Women Innovators Initiative (WI2) webinar, we speak with two women founders and CEOs from Cornell University to find out about their experience as female founders/CEOs and to hear about the lessons learned during the formation and the growth of their venture.
