The Future is Female: Navigating the Funding Landscape Effectively

Hosted By

Female founders are on the rise: in 2022, women launched more that 150,000 new companies in the UK, with all-female-led companies making up 20% of businesses.

But despite there being more female founders than ever before, the funding landscape looks pretty bleak. According to the British Business Bank, for every £1 of equity investment in the UK in 2021, all-female-founder teams received just 2p…

If we believe that ‘The Future Is Female’ is not just a statement, but a commitment to driving tangible change, then we also need to face the facts: before she can get there, she’s going to need funding.

However, from Angel Investment and crowdfunding, to VCs and seed fundraising: understanding what streams fit your growth ambitions best can be a hurdle in itself and knowing how others secured them appears impossible.

EAST VILLAGE. wants to fix that, decoding the funding landscape and, ultimately, getting more money in the pockets of women. Join us for The Future Is Female: Navigating the Funding Landscape Effectively, as we assemble a panel of role models paving the way who have ‘been there, done that’, and seasoned experts who have helped others find – and get – the funding that was right for them.
