The past year was particularly transformative for women-owned businesses.

Though many female-founded businesses struggled to raise capital, representing just 2.3% of total venture capital funding according to data from All Raise, something more powerful emerged: a resilient and purpose-driven community of female founders and funders, who together are committed to breaking down barriers for female entrepreneurs.

Wealth Management CIO Katie Nixon and Director of Women & Wealth Steph Wagner discuss how investors can support women-owned businesses through private investments in a way that complements their overall financial goals.
