The Telegraph – Women Mean Business
In support of The Telegraph’s major campaign, Women Mean Business; and in honour of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, The Telegraph is hosting a grand finale event. They will be bringing the campaign to an audience of 300+, through a number of high profile keynote speakers, panels and on-stage interviews. The Women Mean Business Campaign launched in March 2018 with the signing of an open letter from 200 female founders and inspirational leaders. This was sent to the Government to address the lack of funding given to female founders (only 9% of VC funding).
The live event, taking place in London in October, will see female founders of established startups, corporate c-suite executives and government representatives convene to address the lack of funding for female entrepreneurs. The event will also discuss the gender pay gap, equal opportunities and celebrate women in business through live debates and panels.
The event will take place on Wednesday October 31, at the Hilton Bankside Hotel. The event will be chaired by chaired by Telegraph journalists and Women Mean Business founders, Victoria Harper (Features Director) and Claire Cohen (Associate Features Editor and Women’s Editor).
