FEMALE FOUNDERS DEMO DAY

  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM ET

CALLING INNOVATIVE FEMALE-LED STARTUPS TO PITCH

(Application Deadline - Nov 30)

ABOUT THE EVENT

Our Female Founders Demo Day is a quarterly event we started in NYC in 2018 with a mission to create exciting fundraising opportunities for female entrepreneurs. As a startup ecosystem, we believe in walking the talk and bringing more awareness to this mission by starting conversations and showcasing our top women-led startups to help them raise capital.

Our partners and investors who believe in supporting inclusion in technology and empowering women entrepreneurs will be attending. A KiwiTech event to mingle with fellow investors, founders, thought leaders, and partners who believe that it is high time to build a strong community of committed leaders to support female-founded tech disruptions and change the landscape of startups and investors for female entrepreneurs.
