Angels of the North: Female Founders & Investors
5th September 2019
Date(s) - Sep 05
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
THERE IS A REAL NEED TO CONNECT FEMALE FOUNDERS WITH 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).
NorthInvest are therefore excited to invite female founders and investors in tech or digital to our ANGELS OF THE NORTH: Female Founders & Investors event!
If you are a female founder or investor wanting to grow your network, build confidence, and disrupt the industry by helping other women get ahead, this event is for you!
What does the event involve?
Angels of the North 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.
GUEST SPEAKERS ANNOUNCED SOON!
Lunch and refreshments are provided for up to 40 people.
