Organised by For Working Ladies
"Money Talks" is a three-part series including interviews, workshops and panels brought to you by For Working Ladies. The events will take place over three nights from May - June with the aim of creating a space to demystify the world of personal and business finance. In part three, we'll be chatting all things crowdfunding to kickstart/grow your business.
If you’re a female entrepreneur, crowdfunding can be one of the best ways to raise the finance you need to grow your business. In 2016, one-third of all deals into female-founded companies came from crowdfunding. Research shows that women are more successful at crowdfunding than men, 17%of male-led campaigns reach their finance target, compared with 22% of female-led campaigns.
