Build a world where I can afford to fund women-owned startups
- marcelacnn, CNN iReport producer

The rest of the funding goes to startups led by men, yet women-owned firms account for 40% of all privately held firms in the US, according to the National Association of Women Business Owners. In the near future, women will control 2/3 of the wealth in the US, according to Andrea Learned, co-author of Don’t Think Pink.
