She Inspires Business Angels 

The latest report by the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) suggests that despite female angel investors having helped drive more than £2bn of investment in companies across the UK in the past decade, women remain a minority in angel investment. This shortage of women angels has a direct impact because data shows that women are much more likely to invest in female-founded companies. 

She Inspires Business Angels 

She Inspires Business Angels has been established to help bridge this gap and support women in the early-stage of their journey. 
Angels have a critical role to play in supporting female entrepreneurship. She Inspires Business Angels aim to become an investment syndicate, working in close partnership with the wider business angel community to support female founders. We welcome new and aspiring investors who are committed to supporting women who often get overlooked and underfunded.
