Even though women entrepreneurs are just as ambitious and talented as their male counterparts, their companies tend to be smaller and grow more slowly. A lack of scale can be a real barrier for companies that want to succeed in today’s competitive environment, learn how to access funding to scale and grow your company from women founders who have successfully done it.
BDC Investing in Women-Led Tech Firms
