Successes and Investment Opportunities

Studies highlight that female founders are statistically more likely to be financially successful than their male counterparts and possess attributes that set them apart as visionary leaders, including resilience, adaptability, empathy and creativity.

This month, we’re excited to be celebrating our incredible female founder clients and women entrepreneurs who inspire through their successes.

Frustratingly, statistics continue to demonstrate the significant funding challenge for female-led businesses, and progress in improving gender parity in raising funds has been incredibly slow.

However, there are positive snippets of news that show some encouraging signs for women startups; Crunchbase has reported that ‘the portion of recent US funding that went to female founders hit a new peak in 2023’ and that a quarter of all funding ($34.7bn) was invested in companies with at least one female founder.

It also highlighted that women have founded some of the most significant companies in the new wave of generative AI and are leading the way in this transformative technology.

In June we are thrilled to be hosting a series of online events Celebrating Female Founders, including pitches highlighting early and growth stage investment opportunities with female-led businesses, and a forum on inspiring and guiding female founders with success stories and a Q&A with experienced entrepreneurs and industry experts.
