San Francisco International Women Entrepreneurs Forum Announces Its Next Event

Successfully Financing Your ‘Big’ Idea 


When it comes to funding, everyone agrees the Bay Area is the place to be. That said many questions often remain:
How does it work? Who should I turn to for advice? Is a VC the way to go for my company? What risks do I encounter?

While the ranks of women entrepreneurs continue to grow, less than 10% of startups led by women successfully receive any VC funding. The SF International Women Entrepreneur Forum has put together an outstanding panel of advisors, entrepreneurs and investors to share their insights on how to achieve success.
