For a second year in a row, only 2.2% of investor funding went to women-led startups. Women Who Tech was founded to shake up a culture and economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women to launch startups and raise capital, and is on a mission to close the funding gap. By showcasing women-led ventures through Women Who Tech's flagship Women Startup Challenges, the organization provides capital, mentoring, and other resources for women who are creating the most innovative tech companies to help scale their products.
