According to a new report by Briter Bridges, it revealed after analyzing the funding deals that have taken place between 2013 and 2021, that only 3% of all the billions that were invested into African startups went to female-owned startups. On the flip side, 76% of the total funding during the 8-year period went to startups led by all-male teams.

This panel of leading African tech industry experts will discuss and share their insights on how to foster a more equitable and inclusive African tech ecosystem that will benefit African female tech founders who are often under-supported and overlooked in the male-dominated tech world.

Topics to be discussed:
[1] Why female founders are less likely than men to seek equity for their businesses?
[2] In the context of fundraising in Africa, what role does gender bias play?
[3] The importance of more African women being educated in STEM fields.

Who Should attend:
All stakeholders in the African tech sector, including female tech founders, VCs, tech reporters, and communications executives, will benefit from this panel.
