Girls Who Venture is doing a lot of work to increase the visibility of women entrepreneurship and the venture capital environment in several countries around the world. The research that the organization is engaged in can be instrumental to identifying entrepreneurship education gaps across these countries. Raising awareness about such education gaps for girls is crucial to drawing resources towards this cause, and improving women and girls' access to education and training for women entrepreneurship. I cannot wait to see the impact that Girls Who Venture will have on young girls and entrepreneurship as it scales up!

I think that it is vital that programs Like Girls Who Venture exist. My experience with the program was motivational. I had the opportunity to work with girls who typically aren’t exposed the kind of content provided by GWV. These are girls who come from underrepresented communities and thus they are not always exposed to entrepreneurship, let alone venture capital. I believe that as GWV expands, especially throughout the US, we will see a shift in these overlooked communities where more and more of the girls will pursue careers in tech and other STEM careers simply because they were made aware that they exist. GWV fills an educational void that the traditional school system cannot.

Girls who Venture is a wonderful non-profit. The training given is very educative to the girls and women. It is giving enough knowledge in entrepreneurship and therefore more women will go into business. I have learned how to invest into other businesses and how negotiate good deals while I venture.

Many people have had so many challenges when it comes to maintaining their income level.
This program has not only helped the young and ambitious girls with k owledge and skills but also the courage to take up opportunities around them.
The program should proceed.
