– A report to be published in the spring states that fewer women receive
venture capital investment because fewer seek it out.
The report, by Washington
State University and the University of
New Hampshire’s Whittemore School of Business and Economics, also showed
that the percentage of women-submitted business plans that were accepted were
roughly the same as men’s, 13.3 percent compared to 14.7 percent.
There are support organizations that help women get into the
funding “funnel.” The Women’s Technology Cluster based in San Francisco is one. The cluster runs an incubator program that
prepares an early-stage women-led company for the funding process.
