Significant progress has been made in terms of achieving gender equality in the world. We’re now seeing more and more women thriving and shining across different fields. But there’s still so much to do to create a society where women can get full access to opportunities they deserve to grab.
In the startup ecosystem in Southeast Asia, there remains a significant gap in successful funding between male and female-founded enterprises. The Female Founders in Southeast Asia reported that startups founded or co-founded by women bagged only $4.42 billion in total funding in 2021, accounting for 17.2% of all private capital raised in the region.
The Women Leaders Forum 2023 aims to close this gap by helping women founders recognize biased questions from venture capitalists and arming them with tactical ways to respond. This is an ideal event for women leaders to obtain critical resources such as funding, dynamic connections, and partnerships to empower the leaders to connect through the community and grow and scale business faster and stronger.
Women Leaders Forum 2023 is more than your usual networking meetup. This is an exclusive event where you learn different tactics and strategies to interact with investors from a fundraising bias workshop led by AWS experts.
Moreover, you will be able to discuss with thought leaders from prestigious organizations, such as AVV, BNB Chain, Cocoon Capital, GGV Capital, Monk’s Hill Ventures, and Patamar Capital, on different aspects of fundraising, from storytelling to people-to-market expansion.
