Helping women entrepreneurs get the money they need to grow their business

Control the Conversation and Get the Money You Need to Grow Your Business.  A Free Webinar with Dr. Ellen Farrell – April 18

Although women are typically well-prepared when they meet with financial institutions and investors, they are often turned down or receive less funding than men. The reason is that unconscious gender bias plays a role in the question-and-answer (Q&A) period that investors base their decisions on. As a result, women are asked different questions than men and often find themselves in a defensive position instead of a position of power that allows them to advance a business proposal that persuades investors.

This free webinar, hosted by Manitoba Women in Agriculture & Food (MWAF), and delivered by the nationally recognized mentor and Investoready founder, Dr. Ellen Farrell, will focus on understanding the issues and importance of Q&A to Venture Capitalists, and the elements and language that are essential to know before entering into a typical Q&A.

Women will walk away from this session knowing that confidence is not enough. They will learn how to control the conversation with investors, prepare the appropriate materials and deliberately avoid discussing some topics, and ensure they discuss others.
