We were thrilled to celebrate and champion Female Founders through a series of events in June, highlighting opportunities and inspirational stories of breaking the glass ceiling with fundraising success.

With only 2% of funds raised in the UK currently going to Female Founded businesses, it remains a challenging environment for talented women who have compelling opportunities that are often overlooked.

At PACP, we are incredibly proud of our track record that bucks the trend – around 30% of our funds raised are for female-founded businesses.

And with statistics that consistently show that companies founded or co-founded by women do better with generating more revenues, creating higher job growth, dreaming bigger and executing better, their investment opportunities offer significant potential.

We highlight the Female Founder Investment Opportunities that featured in our June events below.

Thanks to our Inspirational Panelists

Many thanks to the talented women who participated in our events and gave incredible insights and support through talking about their experiences and advice learnt during their journeys.
