Learn How to Play the Funding Game
Looking for Funding is like a game. Taking your first steps in funding can be intimidating. There is so much to learn, while you still need to manage and build your business at the same time.
Raising funding IS HARDER for women entrepreneurs, where we only get 2.2% of VC Funding worldwide and the global funding ecosystem still favours white male entrepreneurs. We want to change that, and help you get the funding you need!
A Personal Message from Anne Ravanona
(Founder & CEO of Global Invest Her)
"When I learned about the $300 Billion Funding Gap for Women Entrepreneurs I decided to help change that. My mission is to help women entrepreneurs get ready for funding, get funded faster, and back to building their businesses.
Women Entrepreneurs are the greatest untapped resource in the economy.
Let's Get Funded!"
Sisters are Doing It For Themselves!
We can no longer wait for the $300 Billion Funding Gap to close for Female Founders! At the current rate of change, it will take over 207 for women entrepreneurs to reach economic parity* (*source World Economic Forum Gender Gap Report).
Every step helps, and when we join together, we can move mountains. Join Us and Let's Make Change Happen Faster! We will hold a Global Pitch Competition in Autumn 2019, where the proceeds collected between now and then, will become the Prize Money for a lucky Woman Entrepreneur with the most convincing Pitch! (more information comingsoon).
Looking for Funding can be intimidating and hard for all founders, especially the first time.
Each Course, Masterclass and Resource is designed to give you the key Must-Know information and Practical Key Tips, so you can progress and feel more confident and prepared for your Funding Journey.

I’ve done extensive research over the years on the biological and cultural influences on gender and have collaborated on three books on gender differences at work and in personal life, including “Work With Me” with John Gray, author of “Men Are from Mars Women Are from Venus”. I work globally with Fortune 500 companies and organizations such as American Express, Coca-Cola, NASA, L’Oréal, Nissan, SAP, and Vistage Worldwide, providing keynotes and facilitating gender awareness workshops, helping both men and women better understand and be better understood by the other gender.
