Battling The Bro Culture: Being A Woman In The Startup World

There’s never been a better opportunity for women in the startup space—but the bro culture still persists. In this session, we’ll examine what gender bias really looks like and explore ways to overcome that bias and get your ideas found—and funded—by investors.

We’ve assembled a dynamite group of women investors for this honest and provocative conversation about overcoming bro culture and getting the funding and support you need to build a successful startup. It’s not just a panel—it’s an open floor conversation, so come armed with your best questions and ideas.
