Learn About Investor Speak™: Program Info Session


Do you feel like you’re not connecting when you speak with investors? In your mind, you’ve delivered a strong pitch, you’ve answered all their questions, and yet the conversation doesn’t go anywhere.

If you feel this way, you’re not alone. Research shows that investors ask women different questions than men, and those questions don’t lead to investment. As a result, women get less than 2% of VC funding.

WeBC is working to help more women overcome this barrier to equity financing, through our Investor Speak™ program, which teaches women how to lead the conversation. Participants practice on their own time for 15 minutes a day, then join weekly meetups with the group to receive group support on their venture capital journey.

Join us for a free info session to hear about the Investor Speak™ Program and learn:

  • Why it’s important to get more women into the equity financing world
  • What kinds of businesses are investable
  • What a strong value proposition looks like
  • And more!
