Achieving equality between men and women

Entrepreneurs are solving critical challenges affecting gender equality, such as financial inclusion and healthcare, that have only been exacerbated by Covid-19. Yet women entrepreneurs who have experienced such inequalities first-hand often do not receive the resources needed to scale their businesses and solutions. In emerging markets, women-led startups receive only 11% of seed funding and 5% of all later-stage funding. Village Capital, with support from the IFC, is developing specific strategies to catalyze investment into women-led ventures, improve the ecosystem, and close the gender financing gap.
