Prepare your questions - We’ll open up for the audience to ask all the questions and talk about uncertainties, in order to support more women in choosing the investor path.
As we’re aware, the situation is still very unequal in the investment world; recent research Women invest less than men. This is not an opinion, it is a fact. According to data from the Angel Capital Association (ACA), just 22% of angel investors in the U.S. are women. In Europe, the situation is even more dire, with women amounting to just 14% of angel investors in the U.K. and 5% in France, the data shows.
