The Women Funding Women global series leverages the expertise of investors, innovators and influencers. We shine a spotlight on the investments made in women-led companies while encouraging more women to invest.
Women Funding Women is co-hosted by Dell and the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) and Springboard Enterprises. In 2017-2018, the series traveled to seven cities – Amsterdam, Austin, Brooklyn, Paris, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto – to foster a global community that supports and invests in women by promoting investment opportunities and encouraging collaboration. We continued our 2018-2019 global tour in: Austin, Mexico City, Singapore, São Paulo, Bangalore, Tel Aviv, Stockholm, Dublin, and Washington, DC.
The program starts with a fireside chat, featuring first-person insights from an entrepreneur and her investor, followed by presentations from three growth stage entrepreneurs accompanied by crowd-sourced resources, comments and connections.

what people are saying about women funding women
“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
“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
“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
