Gatekeepers of Venture Growth
The success of high-potential, women-led companies is critically important to the long-term prosperity of America. However, in spite of the fact that their rate of participation in new venture creation has been at an all-time high for the last fifteen years, women have received a disproportionately low share of available venture capital in the United States.
