Book Description: Women-led start-ups get only 2% of venture capital funding, even though women own 1 in 3 businesses globally. Of that percentage, East Asian women-led startups only receive a small sliver of that 2%. Despite this disparity, women-founded businesses return more than twice as much per dollar invested than those founded by men.
You Don’t Have to Look the Part is aimed at minority women considering entrepreneurship, venture capitalists and other investors looking to invest in diversity, and advocates (government legislators, business leaders, community activists, researchers, academics, and educators) of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
In You Don’t Have to Look the Part, you’ll learn the:
Impact of the double minority status on East Asian women, driving them out of the workplace and limiting their ability to fundraise
Lessons from the stories of East Asian women entrepreneurs who have built some of the world’s biggest companies, like Coffee Meets Bagel, Canva, and Grab
Lesser-known strengths of East Asian women-run businesses that make them great investments with high ROI potential
Innovative solutions to support diversity in the start-up industry, starting with government legislators, educators, and investors
And so much more…
There is a gold mine of great investment opportunities hiding in plain sight. Let’s shine the spotlight on East Asian women founders. Talking about diversity isn’t enough, we must act on it by showing everyone that, in order to be successful, you don’t have to look the part.
