Sophia Ruffolo on the Promise of a World with More Women-Owned Businesses

CSE’s Grace Pedota recently hosted Sophia Ruffolo – CEO and Founder of femmebought – to discuss her mission to promote women-owned businesses and close the funding gap for female-led companies.

In this discussion, Sophia shares the insights that are driving her mission for economic parity for women, including the dramatically low number of Fortune 500 companies led by women (3:30), the wide gap in VC funding for male-vs-female led companies (4:25), and the global response to her efforts to promote gender equality in business (8:27).

Listen until the end to hear how she made a 180 degree turn from her legal career in banking, the potential pitfalls of raising private capital, and the role she is playing in demystifying cannabis for women business owners.
