Join us to hear about funding opportunities that may be available to you as a female founder!

About this event

Women-led businesses continue to face systematic barriers that make operating and scaling an organization that much harder. Accessing the necessary funds to achieve company goals is a challenging process, and unquestionably time-consuming, not a luxury that many founders have. But still, non-dilutive funding goes untouched by those who need it most!

Pocketed’s ‘Funding for Female Founders’ will not only introduce attendees to the ins and outs of securing non-dilutive funding as a business owner, but securing non-dilutive funding as a female business owner. From Pocketed’s Co-Founder herself, Aria Hahn will highlight the opportunities female-led businesses have in the Canadian market.

In this session, hear from Pocketed’s CTO and Co-Founder, Aria Hahn, who will discuss:

  • Seeking funding opportunities as a women-led business
  • Recommendations on approaching non-dilutive funding, generally and case-based
  • Several specific programs for women-led businesses available in Canada

This session is great for any business founder or owner looking to explore the world of non-dilutive funding, but would be particularly beneficial to those businesses started and led by female entrepreneurs.
