What a great event we had yesterday evening to celebrate the International Women's Day and look at ways we can all do more to Invest in Women, address gender bias and support #FemaleFounders!
It started with a Pitch Clinic and Mini Kick Start sessions for six amazing companies, run by Voulez Capital in partnership with firstminute capital, Startup Funding Club, EY Winning Women, Morrison & Foerster, Cruxy & Company and G by Grant Thornton. The Clinic was massively over subscribed and we are looking forward to organising one for next month already.
It then continued with a panel discussion amongst some very special women, moderated by our Founder & CEO, Anya Navidski and comprising: Anna Faelten (Corporate Finance & Winning Women Initiative, EY), Carrie Osman (Founder & CEO, Cruxy & Co), Tamara Rajah (Founder & CEO, Live Better With) and Francesca Warner (Co-founder & CEO, Diversity VC). There was great engagement from a room full of entrepreneurs and investors and some wonderful, insightful stories, experiences and advice from the panelists.
A big thank you to everyone who participated and worked so hard to make this event such a success. And a special thank you to Morrison & Foerster for hosting this event for us and to their team for helping to organise it.
We are already looking forward to next year's #VoulezInvestinHer2019!
