    Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders
    Innovate Finance Recorded: Oct 16 2018 62 mins
    Even though VC investment into UK FinTech has grown exponentially in recent years, reaching $1.8 billion in 2017, women still only raise a minute percentage of this. A recent study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Mass Challenger, a network of startup accelerators, found that when women applied for investment, they received less funding compared to the average male founder, but made double the revenue.

    Our panel of CEOs in leading FinTech firms and investors will look at how women in FinTech are raising funding. Who are the funders? What are they looking for and what needs to change? Do women need to rely less on traditional modes of finance or are more dynamic options available?
