Women and Entrepreneurship: Go Against the Flow documentary screening
February 10, 2017
From their website: “Every Year for the past 30 years more women than men have graduated college. Women are entering the workforce in equal numbers to men, but women still:
– Earn 79% of their male counterparts
– Receive less than 10% of venture capital funding
– Make up only 18% of all start-up founders
– Run only 4% of Fortune 500 companies
– Only 2 % of women owned firms generate more than a million dollars
YET, research shows gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform their peers and companies with more women on their board are more successful. On February 10th, join us for the screening of ‘Go Against the Flow ‘ with a post documentary roundtable discussion with Boston female entrepreneurs to discuss the role Boston and its entrepreneurs have to play in changing these.”
