Women-led startups receive just 2% of venture capital dollars, despite generating higher returns on invested capital and exiting sooner. This is set to change with the launch of The 98, a new fund which offers women founders capital, operating expertise and the power of an experienced network to help female entrepreneurs build the companies of the future from startup to scale.
Join Lynda Clarizio and Joy Marcus, Co-Founders of The 98, as they tell you everything you need to know about how to spot an opportunity, scale a business, gain funding and change the world. They are joined by Sarah-Marie Martin at Uber in a session moderated by NBCU's Global Chairman of Advertising & Partnerships Linda Yaccarino. With experience running early-stage investments in companies such as Google, Amazon and Kayak, the team behind The 98 will discuss the timely issues facing female founders and how to fix them.
