When Women Hold the Wealth


Women are set to inherit $41 trillion of wealth over the next 40 years and they are emerging as a driving force as investors, as entrepreneurs and as leaders of the impact investing movement. Women have also demonstrated that they often make purchasing decisions based on their personal values. So what happens when women hold the pocketbook? This panel will explore how leading female venture capitalists, female founders and investors are taking the reins in a male dominated world.
