The problem we solve :
Women-owned businesses struggle to obtain the necessary know-how to overcome barriers for raising capital and access investment funding for their businesses. This reduces the pipeline of innovation and restricting economic development in many countries.
Who we solve this for?
Female-led businesses looking to grow their business through increased funding and the related need for learning, community and information to better access direct funding.
Frustrations with current solutions
Each founder or investor has different needs, wants and expectations around the capital they are looking to source. Often they are starting from a point of limited contacts or knowledge related to funding. Furthermore, finding funding is a time-consuming process, we hope our funding directory of funding organisations and founder investment pitches will make the process easier and faster!
Why is now the right time to solve it?
There is growth globally in female entrepreneurship not yet matched in terms of funding support. We want to be part of the growing movement.
