Calling all Seattle-area entrepreneurs! Apply now to crowdfund with the inaugural iFundWomen Seattle cohort.
The funding deadline is May 15, 2019!
iFundWomen is coming to Seattle!
As one of the top tech markets in the country, Seattle female entrepreneurs are poised to launch and grow hundreds of businesses in the coming year, and increased funding and visibility will allow better businesses to launch. So we’ve teamed up with the Riveter, the hottest Seattle-based startup that designs female-forward workspaces and a connected platform for entrepreneurs, remote workers, and freelancers, to host the first iFundWomen Seattle Crowdfunding and Pitch Experience.
iFundWomen Seattle is designed to help the region’s female entrepreneurs raise the capital needed to make their business idea a reality, offering access to one-on-one expert crowdfunding coaching, professional video production services, access to a private network of Seattle-based entrepreneurs, and participation in a pitch competition.
"Crowdfunding, coaching, connections, and pitch competitions have been our winning play for female entrepreneurs in a local region, and we cannot wait to bring iFundWomen Seattle to life", said Karen Cahn, Founder and CEO of iFundWomen.
All Seattle-area women-led startups and small businesses are encouraged to apply now.
iFundWomen will host 2 pop-up video production days on June 21, 2018 and June 22, 2018 for entrepreneurs to have a high quality video asset created for their campaigns and beyond. Entrepreneurs who crowdfund through iFundWomen Seattle will receive a 15% discount on video production services by using promo code “SEATTLE”.
iFundWomen Seattle is a one-stop resource for those who want to support and grow female-led businesses through financial contributions of any amount. Backers can discover businesses, choose unique rewards for their support, and track the financial progress of all campaigns featured.
Campaigns that are fully funded by October 15, 2018 are eligible to participate in the first-ever iFundWomen Seattle Pitch Competition, hosted at The Riveter. This pitch event gives select top-performing crowdfunders a chance to pitch their ideas and raise even more startup capital and visibility for their businesses.
All women-led businesses in the region are strongly encouraged to apply, and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Applicants can register on the iFundWomen Seattle website until July 31.
