It’s International Women’s Day, and here at Indiegogo, we are celebrating all month long.
Indiegogo is committed to uplifting powerful female-identifying entrepreneurs and BIPOC innovators and helping them thrive throughout the year. But International Women’s Day is a particularly important occasion to acknowledge all the hard work that female-identifying folks have to do to have their ideas taken seriously and to find the funding to make those ideas into a reality. In a world where venture capital funding still goes primarily to white men, there are very real hurdles to building a business when you aren’t white and male.
We’re highlighting the stories of female-identifying entrepreneurs on our Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn all month long, with a particular emphasis on women of color. In our Day in the Life blog series, we give an overview of how entrepreneurs spend their time and achieve so much. And in our Q+As, we get a behind-the-scenes look into what makes the entrepreneurs tick. You can follow along with us on social, or check out some of our Day the Life posts below.
