Diverse teams create more value.

It is 2021, and female-founded & co-founded companies still get less than 11% 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 at Nordic Female Investor Meetup (NFIM2021), on October the 27th. 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 sixth time to set focus on the challenges and opportunities that still lie ahead and to encourage and inspire more women into the startup world.
