Female-Funded Investment Firms

'Female Funders' is a Platform Helping Women Pursue Angel Investing

— July 12, 2017 — Business
In an effort to encourage diversity in the startup community, the startup co-creation company Highline BETA, recently acquired an education platform called Female Funders, which is "dedicated to helping women pursue angel investing." With a wide variety of resources and access to prominent angel investors, the platform is paving the way for future female investors and entrepreneurs.

Female Funders is the world's first online educational portal and community for aspiring female angel investors who are interested in raising seed capital. The company's mission is to empower aspiring investors by teaching them how to make their first investment and then continuing to help them learn and grow throughout their journey to becoming seasoned investors. The platform also acts as a powerful networking resource and a tool for helping female entrepreneurs raise the capital needed to grow their businesses.

The platform is particularly important in today's business climate, as women currently represent only 20 percent of angel investors and only six percent of deal-making venture capitalists. Despite these figures, women around the world are eager to climb the corporate ladder and to support a new generation of entrepreneurs. As a result, Highline BETA hopes that its acquisition of Female Funders will help the company encourage more female angels to invest. As Highline BETA's COO Lauren Robinson explains, "We need more diversity to drive innovation forward, to provide a broader variety of perspectives and approaches, from people of all backgrounds and genders."

With the goal of empowering 1,000 women to make their first angel investment, Female Funders and Highline BETA are helping to move the dial on diversity and support more female entrepreneurs.
