I recently had the opportunity to mountain bike the Flume Trail in Nevada. The cliffs overlooking Lake Tahoe are at once breathtaking and dangerous. It’s an exhilarating experience.
It’s dangerous, too. Which is probably the reason there is a certain part of the trail with a sign that encourages people to walk their bikes. During my ride, I was struck by this. Who decided that people should walk and not ride their bikes on this part of the trail as opposed to any other part of the trail? The entire trail is dangerous and challenging, but this is where I’m supposed to walk my bike?
Fundid is on a mission to get women-owned businesses the capital they need to grow so that we can all close the business wealth gap. While 42% of businesses in the US are owned by women, they only account for 4% of revenue generated by private businesses. We spend our time at Fundid thinking about what the world would look like if women also generated 42% of revenue and how to get them the capital they need to make that happen. Fundid is creating new ways to get small businesses the capital they need to grow and is built from the feedback of women entrepreneurs.
