    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Venture capitalists have played a huge role in spurring innovation among start-ups during the modern tech boom, but that’s not always the case for women-led start-ups. Male VCs are not as eager to invest in products and services for and by women, which leads to a culture of implicit sexism within the entrepreneur and start-up community. This Conversation brings together a group of women who have innovated in their fields and broken the proverbial glass ceiling.
