What is Angels of the North: Female Founders & Investors?
Globally, less than 10% of funding goes to women-led businesses, and in the UK only 2.17% of funding went to women in 2016 (Pitchbook). And yet, data shows that startups with female leadership grow faster (Forbes). We also know that female investors are more likely to back female-led startups (UKBAA 2018).
There is a real need to connect female founders with investors.
In 2018, we partnered with UK British Angels Association (UKBAA) to understand the barriers holding female investors and founder back and created the Angels of the North: Female Founders & Investors community. The series is an informal get-together where female founders and investors can be inspired by female business leaders sharing their experience and insights on:
– How to make informed investment decisions
– How to create a successful pitch
– How to approach investors
– How to increase your confidence in business
You’ll get to meet like-minded people who are experienced, passionate about the region and tech, and genuinely want to help other female business leaders and investors reach their full potential.
