Description

LadyDrinks comes to San Diego April 26th. Our featured fireside chat speaker is Shelly Kapoor Collins, founder of the Shatter Fund.

Collins has seen the way women’s startup ideas often get short shrift from her male colleagues. 7 percent of all venture capitalists are women according to a TechCrunch analysis, and women received less than 3 percent of all venture funding in 2016, according to a report in Fortune in March. [San Francisco Chronicle]

Collins wants women to have better access to money, networks and markets. So she created the Shatter Fund, which invests solely in women-led businesses. A few of Shatter's portfolio companies include leading female led companies GlamSquad, UrbanSitter, and HelloAlice.

“We have a good old boys’ network,” she says. “We need a good old girls’ network.” [San Francisco Chronicle]

15 women are invited to a private cabana at Kettner's Exchange to engage her in conversation.
