Each week the founder of #Empowerista, Alex Wehrley, interviews empowered, purposeful and successful women breaking barriers in a variety of fields.

Funding Female Founders

This week Alex Wehrley chats with a former Nickelodeon star turned venture capitalist. Jesse Draper is founding partner of Halogen Ventures and the creator and host of the Emmy-nominated television series “The Valley Girl Show.” According to Tech Crunch’s 2017 findings, the percentage of women partners at the top 100 venture firms was only 8% - which may explain why only about 10% of venture capital has gone to startups with at least one female founder (globally since 2012). Jesse is helping increase the number of funded companies led by women. For more empowerment, head to: empowerista.me
