According to Crunchbase, just 800 female-founded startups globally received venture funding through mid-December of 2020. That’s a 27% decrease over the same period the year before. Fifty-eight percent of startups have less than $25k at their disposal during the startup phase, and only 1% ever make it to $1M in revenue.

In this fireside chat with Tina Dai (VC at Silverton Partners) and Ashley Rose (CEO and co-founder of Living Security), Ashley will share her story of how she successfully raised $20M+ from top investors to build a company that is experiencing 3x growth annually. Meanwhile, Tina will share her insights as an investor at the most active, longest-running VC firm in Austin.
