Outside the Box: Women-owned businesses face a lack of funding — and here’s how to change this

When women entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses seek funding to grow their business, the statistics aren’t pretty.

Just 2.2% of all venture capital in the U.S. goes to companies founded solely by women. In addition, companies with all-male founders receive funding after their first round close to 35% of the time. For companies with female founders, that number is less than 2%.

The F Project intends to change this landscape.
