Read the Testimonials


“Having attended many tech funding networking events run by men, I can say, that the Women Funding Women event was about possibility whereas the traditional male-run tech events I’ve attended were about exclusivity, i.e. those of us on stage are in and those in the audience are out.  Complete opposite vibe at Women Funding Women.” ~Daria Sommers, Room 11 Productions, Brooklyn, NY

 “For me, the best part was that it was an event where women listened to women being interviewed by women talking about Business. Not about “being a woman in business” but just the nitty-gritty of getting it done. ” ~Abigail Edgecliffe-Johnson, Founder at RaceYa, Brooklyn, NY  

 “Women Funding Women offers actionable insights for women figuring out how to fund the next stage of growth in their companies… Packed with founders, investors, and community supporters, [it] also provided a meeting point for women in the Toronto tech ecosystem.” ~Jessica Galang, Betakit, Toronto, Canada

“Go! Network…it’s a bunch of interesting and inspiring people just like you. You never know who you are going to meet and what may become of it. Also the ‘pitchers’ gave practical advice and were very approachable. It was an intimate event, and felt like everyone was helping each other out and there was a real feeling of mutual support.” ~Helen Maynard-Hill, Int. Fundraising Consultancy, Amsterdam, Netherlands

“I found the event very inspiring as a man working with women. I’m looking forward to seeing the future women bring thanks to your movement and determination, to achieve and join this women’s revolution is an honor.”  ~Johan Andriavahi, Design & Investissement, Paris, France

“I left the Women Funding Women fireside chat and pitch session with my heart & mind filled with buckets of hope for my future.”  ~ Michaela Lucas, Sydney, Australia

“I’m grateful for the access to valuable and timely insights and to have met other like-minded, ambitious women working towards raising the profile of female founders and entrepreneurs.” ~ Patricia Kaziro, Radiate Coaching, Sydney, Australia

“This [event] feels like drinking water for the first time after 20 years of drought. Tokyo needs this!” ~ An Attendee in Tokyo, Japan

“The insights from the speakers reminded me to be proud of my determination toward possibilities of the future and aim my innovative business to contribute to a better global world.” ~ Shoko Tsuge, Sho Music, Tokyo Japan
