Female-Led Companies That Have Bridged The Funding Gap [INFOGRAPHIC]
While the past year has seen increased strides toward gender equality in entrepreneurship, it’s still a work in progress, especially when it comes to venture capital. Among the 3,003 companies that secured Seed, Series A or Series B funding in 2016, only 479 (16%) had at least one female founder, and only 246 (8%) had a female CEO. These findings are echoed by a recent study by CrunchBase, which found that between 2010-2015, only 15 percent of seed dollars globally went to startups with at least one female founder.
Although the lack of funding attributed to female-founded and female-led companies can be discouraging, there remain a wealth of women-led companies that have managed to bridge the funding gap. With this in mind, 99designs decided to take a closer look into who these successful companies are, focusing on companies that raised at least one round of funding (Seed, Series A or Series B) in 2016.

Turns out, these companies stretch coast to coast and across industries.
With such fine leadership, we look forward to seeing these companies achieve even more victories.
