On September 9, I had the great opportunity to take part in the 2015 Women in MassChallenge Showcase. 38 startups founded by women showed their amazing innovations and were joined by hundreds of startup community supporters to discuss the most important issues surrounding women in entrepreneurship.
Women in MassChallenge empowers and supports female founders in order to provide better access, education and support for the unique challenges that face female entrepreneurs. Founded by MassChallenge alumni in 2012, this women’s network hosts regular meetings in addition to this annual event.
Overall, the number of female entrepreneurs is on the rice. Recently, Boston and London were named the best cities in the world for female entrepreneurs. Of the startups participating in the MassChallenge Boston Finalist class, 44% has at least one woman founder.
