In this webinar, experts from Accion Venture Lab discussed the merits of gender lens investing and how Accion Venture Lab has developed a gender lens approach when considering an investment in a fintech startup. We touched on the pandemic’s impact on this effort and report out on results from some exciting workshops that Venture Lab has organized and hosted for current and aspiring female entrepreneurs in Mexico, Brazil, and India.

This discussion focused on the issues and challenges female fintech founders face unique to their gender, particularly with accessing investor capital throughout the organizational lifecycle.
