Apply to Crowdfunder.com’s contest to pitch to Kay Koplovitz and other top female investors!
Did you know that in recent years, women-led ventures have received less than 5% of professional investment capital? It’s a problem, and a trend many would like to see change. How about you?
If there were a simple way to bring attention and impact to this problem, would you help?
Leading online investment and fundraising platform, Crowdfunder.com along with exponential technology accelerator Singularity University are partnering together to produce CROWDFUNDxWomen, an online competition that will select 10 women led tech ventures to pitch live in front of accredited investors and supporters of female entrepreneurship.
Starting with an online contest on Crowdfunder.com, investors and the crowd will collaborate to identify the top ten emerging women-led tech ventures. These ten finalists will pitch their companies live to the investment and entrepreneurial communities at Singularity University on December 6, 2013, competing for prizes and potential investment. Crowdfunder will follow the competition with investment crowd funding for the winning ventures to its network of more than 1,500 investors and funds online.
The online competition is open through Friday, November 22, 2013. Ten finalists will be selected on November 27, and the program will culminate in a live pitch event on December 6, at Singularity University’s campus at NASA Research Park at Moffett Field, CA.
Women-led tech startups, with capital investment of less than $1.5M and a demonstrated service or product are invited and encouraged to enter. Enter your company, vote on women-led companies, and learn more about CROWDFUNDxWomen at: http://crowdfunder.com/crowdfundx/cfxwomen
