Improving the diversity of funding by getting female founders access to VCs

Set up by Female Partners in VC for Female Founders. 

About Us

We are a group of women VC partners who would like to see more women entrepreneurs build great businesses, and help them if we can. To that end, we're putting together a group of London based investors to help support the community, inspired by some of our friends in the US who have set up femalefounder.org

Why?

We know that smaller networks are an issue for female founders, and we want to level the access playing field. We will run several sessions a year, where female entrepreneurs can have a 1-on-1 meeting with decision makers at local VC firms for an informal conversation. We will also be running round tables so the entrepreneurs can meet a community of other female founders. We expect to run 1 event per quarter, each focused on a stage (Seed, Series A, growth) or theme, with the first session focused on companies coming up to their Series A rounds.


A big thank you to the terrific investors who have agreed to be part of this.
