Quesnay Female Founders in Tech Competition 2017 is Live

Quesnay‘s inaugural Female Founders in Tech Competition is now live! Spread the word to US-based technology startups with a female leader and a product that positively impacts the financial services and / or insurance industries. See press release here.


There is a distinct lack of representation and startup funding among women – the competition format will provide a way to fund, support and mentor female founders in the financial services arena, where the gap is particularly stark. Women leaders starting their own business face significant barriers to growth. Among the nearly 500 deals closed in the Fintech sector in the US in 2016, less than a dozen went to companies founded by women.


Six finalists will have access to mentorship and business development guidance from industry leaders, access to Microsoft Azure cloud credit, and social media promotion.
