Public Programming Webinar: Real Talk about Fundraising

November 10, 2022 | 10:00-11:00am EST

Raising capital is vital to the success of social impact startups and their founders. For women, access to venture capital funding has shrunk since 2016. In 2021 only 2% of the $330 billion venture capital was raised by women. Of this percentage, 0.50% went to Black women, while 0.51% went to Latina founders.  The reality is that fundraising is often the most difficult part of the entrepreneurial journey.


Our panel will include Jasmine Jones, Founder of Cherry Blossom Intimates and CEO of Myya; Stefanie A. Thomas Impact Venture Investor at Impact America Fund; Ramtin Momtazi and Small Business Banker at Bank of America, moderated by Dahna Goldstein, Chief Investment Officer at Halcyon.


The webinar will address the challenges that Black and Latinx women founders face when raising capital for their ventures and discuss how entrepreneurs can navigate systems to get the resources they need for their businesses to grow and thrive.


This webinar is part of a series that will lead up to the residency for the Future Builders fellowship, which will be held in DC in February 2023.
