Please join ALLRISE DC on November 12th for a lively discussion about the journey of three women fintech founders in starting and developing their businesses. While all entrepreneurs must overcome challenges, women, in particular, face significant hurdles in obtaining funding. The founders will be joined by fintech venture investors for a discussion about enhancing women founders’ opportunities to attract investment.

The panel will feature:

·         Dale Nirvani Pfeifer, founder and CEO of Goodworld

·         Kristen Tyrrell Anderson, founder and COO of Catch

·         Eva Pittas, a founder of Laika

·         Raj Date, founder and managing partner of Fenway Summer and co-founder, FS Vector

·         Ciara Burnham, partner, QED Investors.

·         Moderator: Amy Friend, co-founder of ALLRISE DC and Senior Advisor, FS Vector

The roundtable will be followed by a reception.

This is another in a series of events by ALLRISE DC, a newly established organization working to lift women’s careers in financial services through mentoring, networking, and education. As with all of our events, this is open to financial services professionals from government, industry, law firms, and trade associations, and is intended to comply with the reception exception to the Congressional gift rules and the de minimis exception under the Federal Banking Agencies' ethics rules.
