Women and the Fight for Financial Power in Venture Capital

About the Book

On average, women represent only 7% of partners at top 100 venture capital firms globally. There has been rising awareness around the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions in venture capital and an increasing number of programs encouraging women to become investors, but what does it really take to start a new venture capital firm? Are diversity and inclusion initiatives in venture capital effective? This book provides first-hand perspectives on the challenges facing women as emerging managers and stories about women who are beating the odds and disrupting the industry. Although venture capital represents a small percentage of startup funding, it has a significant hand in shaping the future. This book offers solutions so that gender equity can be possible in the industry that funds the innovation economy.
