Networking@Rev: Empowering the Ecosystem – Moving Toward Gender Equity in Entrepreneurship
Thursday, June 23 (6:00 – 8:30 pm. ET) at Rev: Ithaca Startup Works  

 Female founders are flourishing. In 2021, startups founded solely by women in the United States raised nearly $6.4 billion in venture capital – 83% higher than the total raised in the previous year, according to PitchBook data. Despite these exceptional gains, that amount still represents a sliver (2%) of the $330 billion in VC dollars invested in U.S. startups across the board last year.  

Rev: Ithaca Startup Works invites the public to “Empowering the Ecosystem” on June 23 (6:00 – 8:30 p.m. ET), an evening devoted to networking and addressing how to move the entrepreneurial ecosystem toward gender equity. 

 Andrea Ippolito, CEO and founder of SimpliFed, a Rev member company that recently closed a $6 million seed round, will be leading an engaging panel discussion with founders, investors, and business leaders on ways the ecosystem can better support women and non-binary entrepreneurs seeking startup success. The night – free and open to all – will also showcase startup pitches and include mingling over local food and beverages. 

Attendees must abide by Cornell University’s COVID-19 event protocols (detailed in the Eventbrite upon registration).
