Event description
Join Boss Women Collective for a powerful conversation with some of the top investors shaping the future of women in venture capital.

About this Event

[EVENT IS FULLY SOLD OUT] Follow @bosswomencollective for updates about future events!

Join Boss Women Collective for a candid panel discussion on the networks women take to land their first check, first yes, and first step. The future of venture capital is not just women investing in more women, it’s also men stepping up and funding female founders. You’ll hear from women and men on both sides of the investment table: founders that navigated the journey, and investors that have the power to write the checks. Expect success stories along with candid nods to past failures, the importance of gender parity, and actionable tips going forward.

Our panel will be moderated by Natasha Mascarenhas - a reporter at Crunchbase News covering early stage companies and underrepresented founders. Before she reported on the crazy world of tech, she worked at the Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, and BostInno.
