In study after study, companies with more gender diverse teams have been shown to outperform financially. Yet the funding levels for women-led startups are still abysmal (2-3% of venture-backed startups have a woman CEO, and only 17% of venture-backed startups have even a single woman on the executive team).  How can women entrepreneurs leverage their advantages and mitigate the challenges in fundraising?  Hear from women entrepreneurs, investors & startup leaders about how you can change the landscape - and make more money by doing so.  The magic here is in the diversity, so this session is not intended for women only.
