Founder, Fortuna Funding LLC

Delilah Panio
United States of America

Delilah Panio is passionate about the multiplier effect of women achieving financial success, impacting everything from economics to politics to climate change. Fueled by this passion, Delilah created Fortuna Funding as a practical and intentional guide for women entrepreneurs to access aligned capital. This is critical to closing the significant funding gap to generate sustainable wealth for women and to transform that wealth into economic power. She achieves this mission through educational programs and partnerships, including with UBS Women’s Wealth and Coralus (formerly SheEO) on Project Female Founder, an investor-readiness and global network accelerator for women founders. Delilah is the co-founder of We Are Enough, a non-profit that educates women on why and how to invest in women-led businesses and/or with a gendered lens. Her work addresses UN SDG 5, Gender Equality, and SDG 8, Decent Work and Economic Growth. Delilah is also Vice President of the U.S. Capital Formation for Toronto Stock Exchange, advising U.S. companies on going public in Canada. With over 20 years of experience in the capital markets, Delilah guides private and public financing options, from bootstrapping to IPO. Delilah is a frequent speaker and pitch judge and coach and sits on several advisory boards, including Women Leaders of Octane, MAPLE Business Council, WE Global Studios, and The Allyship. Delilah holds an MBA in Enterprise Development and is certified as a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner. Delilah is exploring the question: “What if all women had access to aligned capital? How would this change everything?”

Delilah would be delighted to share her knowledge of raising capital, funding options, and investing in women. Specifically, she can help with funding strategies, pitch decks, and asking for funding.
