Our Response to the Pandemic

In 2020 we transformed our Women Startup Challenges into the Women Who Tech Startup Grants Program to continue funding game-changing, women-led startups virtually during this pandemic. We are awarding grants up to $20K on a rolling basis to women-led startups. In addition, the W Fund, SteelSky Ventures, HearstLab, Citrine Angels, and other investors will be evaluating finalists for further investment.

Of those women, 59% were propositioned for sex in exchange for funding.

“Women Who Tech: Opening investor doors to fund women-led startups.”

Only 2.8% of venture capital funding goes to women-led startups.

We are crushing that dismal stat.

Women Who Tech is disrupting a culture and an economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women entrepreneurs to access capital.
