CALLING ALL ENTREPRENEURS: Pause your pitch decks, pick up your pens and join us to hear about the most common mistakes that founders make from a panel of experienced investors, entrepreneurs and financial educators.
Women-owned businesses contribute £105 billion to the UK each year. They have the potential to contribute an additional £250bn if women started and scaled a business at the same rates as men. Yet, just 2.8% of venture capital funding goes to women-led startups. In a biased system, how can female founders maximise their chances of getting their businesses funded?
We’ll hear all about the stumbling blocks to avoid and the mindset shifts to transform your pitch from interesting to irresistible.
