European Tech Night – Special Female Founders [fr]
What a better moment to celebrate female entrepreneurs than the Women’s History Month? The Consulate General of France has seized the opportunity to organize the European Tech Night – Special Female Founders on March 13, hosted by the Civic Hall of New York, to highlight women in the European tech ecosystem of New York.
European Tech Nights are a cycle of events organized by European accelerators, Consulates and trade missions, bringing together the European tech scene of New York.
While the industry has recently made some efforts to address gender equality, female founders are still facing serious challenges. According to PitchBook, U.S. female-founded startups have raised only 2.2% of venture capital investment in 2018, despite statistics showing that startups with a woman on the founding team outperform their all-male counterparts by 63% (First Round Capital 10 year project).
On this edition, 4 female founders will pitch their startups and present the solutions to the challenges they have personally faced as women entrepreneurs.
Elodie Dupuy, Managing Director and founder of Full in Partners, Helen Altshuler, Google Maps’ Engineering manager and Emilie Maret, fellowship at The Family will discuss “How Mentoring Can Help Scale Up Women-Led Startups?”
On this occasion, French Minister for Gender Equality, Marlène Schiappa, will share special insights on the topic.
You are welcome to join us for this special edition held on March 13 at the Civic Hall, New York. Please RSVP on the link below:
Women and Men are welcome.
