The purpose of this event is beyond networking. It’s about listening to and fostering the female entrepreneurial ecosystem; something that requires support. According to statistics from 2017 (https://tinyurl.com/y6uomp2e):
Women own only 5% of start-ups.
Only 7% of partners at top 100 venture capital firms are women.
In 2016, venture capitalists invested just $1.46 billion in women-led companies. Male-led companies earned $58.2 billion in investments.
In addition, women remain under-represented in the technology sector in the UK, with the below facts from InnovateUK (https://tinyurl.com/yanecy4r, https://tinyurl.com/y9ny7ejz) speaking for themselves:
Women in the UK are half as likely to start a new business
Men are 3 times more likely to own a business with employees
Equalising women’s productivity and employment levels with those of men has the potential for increased GDP of 35% in the UK
We seek to make a difference, to change the stats for good, and to boost investor engagement in this sector. This event will feature a panel of inspirational keynote speakers such as:
Ramona Liberoff (moderator)
Fiona Scott Lazareff of Techpreneurs
Sabine VanderLinden of Startupbootcamp
Daisy Hill of ZZish
Flavia Richardson of Funding London
In addition, you will have the chance to watch incredible female founders pitch their companies
Janthana Kaenprakhamroy, CEO of Tapoly
Ania Kubow, Co-Founder of Nimbla
Shruthi Rao, CEO of Adapt Ready
