Women Who Tech is on a mission to fund women-led startups. Through our Women Startup Challenges, which have been held at Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and London's City Hall, we have brought together the best early-stage, women-led startups to pitch top investors. We've succeeded in enabling more than $20 million raised for women founders. What’s next? The Women Startup Challenge Podcast! Each week we’ll feature one of ten women-led startups competing for a $5,000 cash grant. We’ll hear from the founders, ask some tough questions, and give you the opportunity to vote for your favorite competing startup.
