WHAT IF: Designing fair and equal access to credit for women, presented by Fundbox | NAWBO

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm

WHAT IF all business owners had fair and equal access to credit?

Women are an economic powerhouse. In the United States, female entrepreneurs and their businesses grow significantly in influence and revenue with each passing year. Yet history shows that women have faced greater obstacles compared to men in their quest to obtain credit. Inequities in today's financial landscape remain and are often perpetuated by financial institutions in their methods for determining creditworthiness. However, things are changing, with the rise of new financial technology firms.

In this webinar we’ll cover:

  • The rise of female entrepreneurs and why it matters
  • How traditional credit approvals often shut out women
  • The credit gap between male and female business owners
  • How financial firms can use technology to help create a fairer future
