Imagine asking a large group of women to invest in other women, and the majority say 'yes!'
This experiment fueled us to build a nationwide movement, The Firehood.
We founded The Firehood in 2021 because we knew that many women in tech face barriers in the workplace every day.
Some forego working for others and make the bold decision to launch their own tech businesses. This too presents challenges.
While women make up 50% of the population in Canada, they continue to struggle with challenges when starting, growing and scaling businesses, especially in sectors focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
The adversities encountered can be traced to four key causes; limited access to: networks, training, leadership opportunities and capital. The Firehood was established in response, to support women in Canada to increase their participation, leadership and prosperity in the tech ecosystem.
The Firehood will bring women together to network with technology professionals, gain access to mentorship, build leadership acumen through specialized training, and increase personal prosperity as technologists, angels, founders and ultimately, accredited investors.
So what are you waiting for? Join The Firehood movement today.
