UNB’s Pond-Deshpande Centre launches network to empower women, non-binary entrepreneurs


The University of New Brunswick’s Pond-Deshpande Centre (PDC)–alongside a group of like-minded organizations across Canada–has launched a new network to empower women and non-binary entrepreneurs. The Women and Nonbinary Impact Network for Venture Capital (WIN-VC) helps women and non-binary entrepreneurs access venture capital funding and supports investors of all genders who are interested in gender-lens investing, systems change, and inclusivity. “By supporting women and non-binary entrepreneurs to access capital, we are contributing to shifting an unequal economic system,” said PDC Executive Director Katie Davey. “We look forward to working with investors to build a more inclusive and equitable capital landscape in our region.”
