FUELLING SUCCESS FOR UNDERREPRESENTED FOUNDERS

Aotearoa New Zealand boasts approximately 2,500 high-growth startups, yet only 21% of them have a woman on their founding team. It’s a stark gender gap that needs to close.

When a woman or gender non-binary person is part of a startup’s founding leadership team, the chances and magnitude of success increase. In short, Aotearoa and the world need YOU.
