Women Startup Challenge Europe at City Hall, London, May 3, 2017. RSVP

Our Mission

The Women Startup Challenge is one of the largest pitch competitions to showcase top early-stage women-led tech startups. 

The Women Startup Challenge has one goal: to disrupt a culture and economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women entrepreneurs to access capital. 

Only 7% of all investor money goes to women-led startups. Our Goal is to crush this dismal statistic.
