Are you a founder that has some market traction and are looking to accelerate with some additional funding? HerStory is a pitch competition that puts you in a room with potential investors to tell your story! You’ll run through your idea and why investing in you and your team will bring innovation, value, and impact.
Studies show what women entrepreneurs and investors have known for decades: traditional pitch competitions consistently fail women. (And, because the research on gender-diverse founders is basically non-existent, it’s safe to say this group is underserved as well.) HerStory is quite literally flipping the script. By leading with narrative and encouraging a relatable, honest and feminist approach to information, connection and business building, we’re challenging the traditional pitch model and spurring innovation. HerStory amplifies a diversity of voices and connects modern entrepreneurs with investors, increasing the likelihood of women accessing funding and growing their pathways to success.
