The “Good Guys: Men Who Help Women Succeed” event will include some of Boston’s awesome male investors who have gone above and beyond supporting women they believe in. They will share stories about the big and small actions they have taken to increase national representation of female VCs and VC funded female founders.
This discussion will be relevant for both men and women, and will include a breakout room discussion, so come with questions and comments ready and please encourage a male mentor or associate to join!
