Financing Women in Saas

Did you participate in our Female Founder Research earlier this year? Discover our findings in a comprehensive report that is now available!

The research we conducted highlights female entrepreneurs’ experiences with — and attitudes toward — various types of funding in the technology industry.

  • Female founders care more about dilution than control—more than three-quarters (78%) are concerned about dilution of ownership, while more than half (54%) want to maintain complete control over their company.
  • Almost three-quarters (73%) are wary of accruing debt but the vast majority (91%) are open to it—terms and conditions are important, and there is concern about current high interest rates.
  • The majority (71%) of female founders agree that venture debt has a lower cost of capital than equity financing—less than half (44%) feel the opposite, that equity financing is less expensive than debt.
