G&W gathered in Denver with a passionate community of female founders, investors, partners, and allies. The panel of VCs explored the current market in the region and why it is that solely women-founded Colorado companies raised just 1.3% of all venture dollars in the state in 2022, which is lower than the national average (source). Overall, we couldn’t have felt a warmer welcome in Denver.
