About the Women Startup Challenge

Women Who Tech is disrupting a culture and economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women entrepreneurs to access capital. Over 3,000 early-stage ventures (40% WOC) have applied to our Women Startup Challenges, cohosted by Google, Microsoft, and LinkedIn, and more. We’ve succeeded in enabling more than $53 million raised for women founders.

Only 2.2.% of Venture Capital (VC) funding goes to women-led startups. We want to crush that dismal stat!
