Women & Funding: How to work against the bias amongst investors


Are you a female founder? Are you currently looking for funding or planning to?  Have you stumbled when asked a tricky question from an investor?  Would you like to arm yourself with knowledge so that you can be more confident when dealing with investors? 

Last year, less than 1% of Sweden's venture capital went to female-founded startups. Research suggests that female founders get asked different types of questions than their male counterparts. 

Researcher Mark A Conley, who has become well known for his research published in *We Ask Men to Win and Women Not To Lose , will explain to us why bias against women occurs and help us troubleshoot ways in which women can deal with these situations. 

Join us to learn how to navigate around gender bias amongst investors and take back your power. 

You can get a taste of Mark's research by watching this TED Talk presented by his co-researcher Dana Kanze
