Virtual Workshop: When Founder Met Funder

August 27 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Join All Raise for their 2nd annual event for up-and-coming Black female founders. Launched in 2019, When Founder Met Funder addresses the fact that Black women are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the US, yet they receive a negligible percentage of overall venture funding. This event offers a unique opportunity for Black female founders to connect with investors & fellow founders in Silicon Valley and beyond. Last year was a huge success with over 100 founders & 30 VCs in attendance and we’re building on that momentum.
