Less than 2% of VC funding goes to Female Founded Companies and less than 5% of all Female Founded Companies generate 7 figures in annual revenue. So we aim to be the change we need to see.
Our ultimate goal is to help 1,000,000 women entrepreneurs generate a minimum of a $1,000,000 in annual revenue by December 31, 2025. The kickoff off for this is to give away a cumulative $1,000,000 dollars by March 8, 2020. This is separate from our Angel Fund available on this site.
In the first round, In celebration of Women's Entrepreneurship Day HERstory Connections gave away cash plus additional prizes to 2 Female Founders and to 2 of our Charitable Partners. In honor of Women's Entrepreneurship Day and National Entrepreneurship Month, we will have another giveaway (cash only for this round no additional prizes). Be sure to subscribe below (which is the primary entry for the contest) to be emailed details. There will be a total of 3 rounds t in celebration of Women Entrepreneurs.
There are multiple ways to enter and gain additional entries as described below for the 2nd round of the giveaway. We even have a way to support our local charity partners (specifically organizations that support and empower women and children) dynamically. Two of our registered Charitable Partners will receive cash donations. This will go to our charitable partners with the most entries into the contest. Our charitable partners are required to promote this contest to their networks.
