FoundHer is a live 4-day digital programme featuring a range of HSBC experts and external guests created to help female founders fulfil their fund raising ambitions.

Building on our commitment to support female entrepreneurs, we have designed the FoundHer Summit in direct response to the research findings from our 2019 She's the Business campaign. The programme has been tailored to meet the following objectives:

1. Help female founders raise capital for their businesses;

2. Enable female founders by sharing knowledge and expertise on the fund raising process;

3. Provide female founders with access to networks, peers, mentors and advisors;

4. Provide a platform to showcase successful female founders and their multiple career paths, in other words, role models.
