Only 11% of all angel investors in Europe are female. Not surprisingly less than 10% of female led European startups receive funding from the VCs at a slightly later stage.
Female Business Angels Podcast wants to move this statistics towards 50% and hope that our podcast will inspire more women to get involved with early stage startups.
Less than 0.5% of venture capital goes to women of colour founders, year over year. Founderland is committed to debunk the myth that there is a “pipeline problem”. They bring founders, allies and investors together to get more diverse, sustainable and scalable businesses funded, by fostering a peer community of founders, offer educational programming on fundraising, and connect their member founders with capital.
