We’re excited to finish our #WomenInPower video series with Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code.
What is Women in Power?
Ellevest talked to four successful women entrepreneurs in the food, fashion, tech and PR industries about how they overcame the challenges of raising money and building a business. No BS, no glossing over the grit, just woman-to-woman advice from influential #WomenInPower.
Why do we need this conversation? Because:
Companies run entirely by women only get about 2.2% of venture capital dollars.
With those kinds of odds, it’s no surprise that only about 17% of venture-backed startups were led by a woman founder in 2017.
But once they launch, women-founded companies outperform companies led by men.
On the fourth and final episode of our #WomenInPower video series, we’ll be featuring the CEO and founder of Girls Who Code, Reshma Saujani. Reshma talks about the importance of bravery, the power behind a single idea, and why she’s raising her son surrounded by powerful women.
“As women, or as girls, we’re raised to have this funny relationship with money, to almost be afraid of it. And since we’re not taught how to invest, how to take risks, when we get older we don’t ask for raises.” –Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code
