The Vegan Women Summit (VWS) has announced the return of VWS Pathfinder - a virtual event covering six continents, featuring CEOs, founders, and investors across a range of industries, including beauty, biotechnology, fashion, and food.The summit will be held on the 29 October 2021 and aims to shine the spotlight on women-led sustainable and animal-free businesses all over the world. The winner of this summit will receive 50,000 USD to boost their business. Five finalists will pitch live in front of a global jury of investors. Investors include Stray Dog Capital, Upfrield, and VegInvest, among others.Diversity And Inclusivity Are An Integral PartIt is important to note that this summit is one-of-its-kind, more than 70 per cent of its speakers are women of colour. The main aim of the event, apart from showering support on female-led vegan brands, is to banish scepticism and create a fair and unbiased path ahead for women entrepreneurs in the animal-free space. This is much needed considering a 2020 study by Crunchbase (USA) found that in 2019, start-ups that had male-only founders raised 195 billion USD. Female-only companies, on the other hand, raised about 6 billion USD.Another significant aspect is that VWS aims to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for all individuals who identify, have identified, or have been identified as women or females.To know more about participating in the summit, you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org and submit your pitch 27th August 2021 on the website.
