Women Investment Forum
Over the last few years, UKBAA has identified the distinct challenges faced by women in the investment ecosystem, from the disproportionately low level of representation of women seeking to angel invest, to the disparity in access to finance faced by women-led teams. In early 2020, based on the recommendations of the Alison Rose Review, action was taken across the ecosystem to change the outlook for women founders, with the launch of the HMT Investing in Women Code. Alongside the commitment to women founders, action has also been taken by angel groups throughout the UK, to create more inclusivity within networks and develop the tools and resources needed to build and grow more women angels.
Join us as key players showcase the actions being taken and understand how they can be applied across the angel investment community regardless of group size or stage, to continue the work that’s already taking place.
