We are the Female Founders Alliance, a private network of startup founders born here in Seattle and now expanding nationally. Our mission is to accelerate female founders success, correcting the dramatic gender gap in our industry. In 2016, only 2% of all venture capital was invested in women. We can do better.
In a year that has seen huge leaps forward in exposing companies, people and behaviors that affect women negatively, we believe it's more important than ever to recognize the companies, people and behaviors that affect women positively. We want to shine the spotlight on our allies; to celebrate those who have done right by us; to say thanks where thanks are due.
So please join us as we celebrate the champions of the Seattle startup community. It will be a fun and memorable evening, featuring winner announcements from the stage, food and beverages from local women-owned companies, plenty of time for celebrating and networking, and more surprises. It promises to be the biggest gathering of female founders and CEOs Seattle has seen in a long time... if ever.
Because individually we are drops of water, but together we are a thunderstorm.
All proceeds will fund the growth of the Female Founders Alliance. Thank you for being a part of our movement.
