NEW HAVEN, January 19, 2021 — According to Crunchbase, a total of 800 female-founded global startups received $4.9 billion in venture funding last year. This data reflects a 27% decrease in funding toward female-founded startups in 2020 compared to 2019. HealthVenture believes that democratizing access to capital for entrepreneurs is key to economic mobility and growth. While last year proved to be most challenging for female-founded startups, thanks to sponsorship from HealthVenture and in part, Northwestern Mutual Future Ventures, LeadHERs will support female founders in the development and design of their innovations and facilitate identifying access to capital.
