San Francisco International Women Entrepreneurs Forum

Announces Its Next Event




Date: Thursday October 2nd, 2014

Venue Location: K&L Gates San Francisco Office, 4 Embarcadero Center, Suite 1200, San Francisco

Topic: When it comes to funding, everyone agrees the Bay Area is the place to be. That said many questions often remain: how does it work? Who should I turn to for advice? Is a VC the way to go for my company? What risks to I encounter?

While the ranks of women entrepreneurs continue to grow, less than 10% of startups led by women successfully receive any VC funding.

The SF International Women Entrepreneur Forum has put together an outstanding panel of advisors, entrepreneurs and investors to share their insights on how to achieve success.

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying the best funding option for your company
  • Targeting VCs and Angels
  • How to successfully work your network
  • Tapping into the psychology of investors

  • What next……
  • And more!
