The51: A Financial Feminism Investing Lab

Women make up 51 per cent of the population, yet they receive less than 3 per cent of venture capital worldwide. The Financial Feminism Investing Lab aims to help educate aspiring women investors and create new funding opportunities for businesses started by women. The program will teach participants about early-stage investing, the social and economic value generated by women-founded enterprises, and the socio-economic barriers that influence women’s access to capital. This project is a partnership with the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business, in collaboration with the Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking and Innovate Calgary.

Grant amount: $50,000
