In Europe there are only 8 percent female business angels - and even in our start-up investor network they are still outnumbered. We want to change this because we are convinced that diversity is an important factor for success.
That's why, we have started a scientific research project in the first half of 2020 on "Weibliche Business Angels in Deutschland" with the Chair of Entrepreneurship at the IUBH - and received exciting results:
have already thought about investing in startups
do not shy away from the risk of investing in startups - they simply lack knowledge of the investment process and access to investment opportunities
do not know any suitable startups in which they can invest
3 out of 4 active and potential female investors value following
What do female business angels want?
➔ Professional access and communication with the startups
➔ Uniform and simple investment processes
➔ Support and advice for female investors
➔ Opportunities for open exchange among women interested in investment
We have taken these wishes to heart and have therefore set up a suitable program with extensive contents and services around education, information, matchmaking and investment.
Exclusive offers from our female investors network
Monthly lunch & learn
On the first Wednesday of every month at lunchtime we offer online education session for our members to dial in to. Topics of this session are for example: Angel Investment, selection criteria, investment process, deal flow, due diligence etc. In addition, there are regular interviews with female business angels who report on their experiences.
In order to get to know each other better and to exchange information, we will, in accordance with the current Corona guidelines, also combine lunch+learn sessions with live meetings. We are looking forward to partners who would like to host these meetings at their own premises in order to also show their range of content.
Female Founders-Investors Meetup
Once a quarter, we organize an exclusive startup pitching event where the best female founders who have applied to us can present their ideas to the network's investors.
If you, as an female investor, become aware of a start-up or a founder, we will be happy to give you our professional assessment and, in appropriate cases, offer you a co-investment.
Female founders support
As soon as you encounter a founder or a startup with female participation, you can network it with us, so that we can check at which level we can help and with which cooperation partners we can connect (e.g. legal advice, pitch training, payment processes, tax, co-working, support programs).
Female Investors Report
At the end of the year we list all startups, activities, cooperations, networks and developments in our female investors report and inform you about next plans and research projects.
