The Future Is Female Investors | Hambro Perks

“Investments made by women earn more than investments made by men, so why is it that just 13% of VC decision makers are female?”

Just one of the many valuable points brought up at Hambro PerksThe Future Is Female Investors event which investigated just that.

The first of the two panels looked into the experience of the female investee. Our founder Emily Forbes shared her two cents alongside Pip Jamieson & Devika Wood – both Hambro Perks-backed.

The second discussion considered exactly why there are so few female investors & featured Hambro Perks’ Kate Burns, Anya Navidski & Wenda Harris Millard.

In front of an audience of men and women, both panels shone a light on the challenges faced by female investors. Crucially, they also exposed what can be changed in the here and now – actionable, tangible takeaways for everyone in attendance

It was an awesome opportunity for the conversation to be taken forward and it was grabbed by both hands by everyone in the room. The female investment wave is rolling and we’re proud to be a part of the crew surfing on the crest!
