Women own 39 percent of all businesses in the US, but female entrepreneurs get only two percent of venture funding. What’s causing this gap? Dana Kanze shares research suggesting that it might be the types of questions start-up founders get asked when they’re invited to pitch. Whether you’re starting a new business or just having a conversation, learn how to spot the kinds of questions you’re being asked — and how to respond more effectively.
This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxPeachtree, an independent event.
Dana Kanze is a doctoral fellow at Columbia Business School where she applies behavioral insights to understand sources of inequality in entrepreneurship.
