FUNDING WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES

MEN ARE TWICE AS LIKELY TO RECEIVE $100K OR MORE IN FINANCING THAN WOMEN
2x

Women are more likely to bootstrap due to fewer financing options, plus they're are twice as likely to report having little to no support system. Yet, they're probably still feeding babies, keeping the house tidy, and showing up to Thanksgiving with a passing dish. #superwoman

PRIVATE TECH COMPANIES RUN BY WOMEN HAVE A 35% HIGHER RETURN RATE THAN THOSE RUN BY MEN
35%

Women are less likely to receive funding from sources such as banks, investors, and savings not because they're less capable, but because of a pay gaps, gender roles, and biases. Period.

FOR EVERY $1.00 EARNED BY A WHITE MAN, BLACK WOMEN EARN $0.61 AND WHITE WOMEN EARN $0.82
$0.61-$0.82

Over ten years, Black women make $8,112 less and White women make $3,744 less than their White male counterpart. That's a down payment on a storefront!
