This year for IWD the focus is on inspiring inclusion to help forge a better, more inclusive world for women, and in the industry we work in this is something we focus on daily.

We love to see female angels, founders and businesses in such a male dominated industry and we took the opportunity this week to chat to some of the women we work with.

šŸ—£ ā€˜Being a female angel investor is really important, as diversity matters; as shown by the shortage of funding for female-led businesses.Ā I try to focus my angel investing on female-led or minority-led businesses, because I know from experience how much harder we have to work to get the recognition we deserve.ā€™ Joanna M. – angel investor.

šŸ—£ ‘I am passionate about raising the profile of female founders especially as a female founder myself. I have recently been selected by the UK Department of Business and Trade to join their women-led US trade mission in support of International Womenā€™s Day 2024.’ Amy W. – SME.

We want to take this opportunity to celebrate incredible women in our industry and look forward to working together in the future to help more an inclusive business industry.
