Will 2015 be the breakout year for women entrepreneurs? Will we finally stop seeing endless headlines about how few women start companies, how hard it is for them to raise venture capital, and how few girls study STEM? Last year, the number of $10-million-plus women-owned firms increased by 57%, the amount of angel funding going to women entrepreneurs rose 40%, and VC funding for women-led business rose 20%. While men still outnumber women when it comes to starting, and raising funding for, new businesses, this year we’ll reach a turning point – where at least it won’t be ‘novel’ to be a female founder. Hear from Jane Park, CEO and founder of Julep, about her path from owner of a single nail salon to CEO of the fastest-growing beauty brand today. Jane has raised $56M from top VCs such as Andreessen Horowitz and Maveron and can share first-hand observations about how the tide has turned for women entrepreneurs in just the past few years.
