Nordic Female Investor Meetup 2020
October 15th

Getting more women into investing and entrepreneurship


Diverse teams create more value.

It is 2020, and female founded & co-founded companies still get less than 7% of the total investments worldwide. We need more female investors, and we need more women to realize that they have the power to become investors and entrepreneurs themselves. That’s why we are bringing some of the most prominent voices together on Nordic Female Investor Meetup (NFIM2020), on the 15th of October. We believe that together, we can help female founded and co-founded companies to receive more. Nordic Female Investor Meetup (NFIM) is held for the fifth time to set focus on the challenges and opportunities still lying ahead, and to encourage and inspire more women into the startup world.
