Featured Session: Women Building and Funding Healthcare Unicorns

Mar 15, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Female founders raised just 2% of VC money in 2021, marking the second year in a row that the percentage of funding to women-led startups shrank. Yet, there’s been an increase in female angel investors backing female-founded companies since 2018.

In this session, hear from female founders who are building billion-dollar healthcare companies on how women are teaming up to back each other’s businesses, the future of women’s health, how the pandemic is shaping and impacting healthcare, and what comes next.
