Crowdfunding is an invaluable resource that has given female entrepreneurs the opportunity to leverage their networks in order to raise crucial startup capital — money that women have traditionally had a tough time accessing in the past through other means. That’s why we’ve discussed its merits in numerous articles.
In honor of what crowdfunding has meant for female entrepreneurs, we also launched a column earlier this year that has published every other week since. Its purpose: to highlight campaigns from women business owners who are running ventures and making products that are unique and significant to their respective industries.
Our bi-weekly celebration of women-led crowdfunding campaigns:
