EP17 Fundraising as females

With Virgin Startup recently announcing their pledge to a 50/50 female/male funding split, we tackle the topic of fundraising as a female founder. Stats indicate that there is a clear gap when it comes to the % of female founded businesses raising money vs male, with just 20% of founders in the UK funded being female. However there are promising changes to this that indicate there is change on the horizon and the future is looking promising for female founders.

Having raised £2.5m to date and being two female founders, we share our tips on how to raise money as a woman in the venture capital world.

We also discuss our thoughts on Black Friday as both consumers and business owners, and what we're doing over at BYBI this Cyber Weekend!
