Although I typically sit in the camp of "You can't get gender equality by segregating yourself," in this case, you can not ignore the funding gap for female entrepreneurs. It's not because there are less female founders or because their businesses are historically less successful. In fact, statistics show the opposite.
When I went to my first stockholder's meeting for the first company I had invested in, I was one woman of at least 50 men, and 27 years old at that!
People invest in businesses and entrepreneurs they know, like, trust and understand. If the landscape of investors remains male dominated, it is only natural they will invest in products that appeal to men. It's important to have programs like yours that bring together like-minded people.
