Men are estimated to constitute 99% of investment decision making partners at VC firms, welcome to the VC boys club. Solution? Get more women investing in early stage companies and VC funds who will invest in more women entrepreneurs. It is estimated that by 2030 women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation's wealth.; therefore, it is critical to our innovation economy that we have more women early stage investors. Let’s change the VC dynamics, move markets, and get gender smart!

Se estima que los hombres constituyen el 99% de quienes toman decisiones de inversión en las empresas de capital de riesgo, bienvenidos al club de hombres de VC. ¿Solución? Haga que más mujeres inviertan en compañías en etapa inicial y los fondos VC que inviertan en más mujeres empresarias. Se estima que para el año 2030 las mujeres controlarán dos tercios de la riqueza del país; por lo tanto, es fundamental para nuestra economía de innovación que tengamos más inversionistas mujeres desde las primeras etapas. ¡Cambiemos la dinámica de VC, cambiemos los mercados y seamos inteligentes en cuestiones de género!
