Why XFactor?

“Female CEOs get 2.2% of venture capital raised. Men raise rounds on average 3x larger than women. Less than 50 black women have raised more than $1 million in venture capital. This needs to change. XFactor has a unique opportunity, from an investment and a leadership perspective, in that many of the women contributing to those percentages are sitting around the table.”
