Women Backing Women Investment Summit Scotland

This summit will bring together both aspiring angel investors and experienced angels to share experience and knowledge on the opportunities to Angel invest in Scotland and with the opportunity to meet some of Scotland’s women led companies looking to raise capital. This Summit offers those who attend a packed agenda of exciting keynotes, fireside conversations, panel discussion and valuable networking opportunities.

The event will include a special keynote from Ana Stewart co-author of the important Pathways Report – A new approach to Women’s Entrepreneurship . Ana will speak about the next stages of implementing the Pathways strategy and what this will mean for women entrepreneurs in Scotland, alongside her own personal perspective on being an angel investor. Panel discussions and conversations will focus on the opportunities for women angels and how we can inspire and empower more women to become angels and invest in women founders.

Currently women represent just 14% of the UK’s business angels and many women are unaware of the routes to becoming an angel or the significant tax breaks. The Women Backing Women campaign’s mission is to increase this to 30% by 2030 through education, shared experiences, good practice and knowledge to help inform policy.

By collaborating and joining forces Mint Ventures, supported by the Scottish Government Ecosystem Fund, partnering with UKBAA, Women backing Women Campaign and RBS are providing this opportunity to support more women founders to increase their access to risk capital.
