In 2021, startups founded by women attracted only 2% of funding given to venture-backed U.S. startups, according to research firm Pitchbook. Black and Hispanic founders snagged only 1.4% and 2.1%, respectively, of venture dollars in 2021, according to studies. Washington University's Olin Business School wants to boost those figures.
