 Women entrepreneurs are a growing force in the economy. Between 1997 and 2011, the number of women-owned businesses in the United States grew at twice the rate of men-owned firms. Nevertheless, one of the fundamental challenges facing any entrepreneur today is finding the capital to launch and grow a business. Do women entrepreneurs face unique challenges or issues in obtaining start-up financing and growth capital?

We welcome our distinguished panelists to explore these and related questions.

Here’s a video of Women for Women International founder Zainab Salbi speaking at the recent “Women in War” conference at the Elliott School at GWU:

“Zainab Salbi, CEO and founder of Women for Women International, discusses the role of women in establishing and maintaining long-term peace. This event was timed to commemorate the 10th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, which addressed the linkages between women, peace, and security in war and post-conflict situations.”
