WE BOS Week2019: Raising Capital with Confidence

Raising Capital with Confidence

Please join us at the DCU FinTech Innovation Center on October 8th at 6:30 pm to discuss strategies for women entrepreneurs raising capital. Our panel includes leaders from TechStars Boston, MassChallenge, JPMorgan Chase and Netcapital.

According to The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) (2018) women-owned startups deliver twice as much per dollar invested as those founded by men. However, only 2% of VC funding is invested in women. During this panel, we will discuss ways for women to raise capital with confidence.

Light snacks, wine, and beer will be served starting at 6:30 pm. The discussion will begin at 7:00 pm and include a Q+A session towards the end.


Jennifer Penny, Managing Director, MMBSI: Technology & Disruptive Commerce, JP Morgan

Jen Riedel, Program Manager, TechStars Boston

MaryKate Meedzan, Operations, Netcapital

Hannah Perry, Boston Program Director, MassChallenge

This panel will be moderated by Vasilios Roussos, Managing Director, DCU FinTech Innovation Center
