  • Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders
    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?

    Business Best Practices: Transparency, Tech Ethics and Tech for Good Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Aug 22 2018 61 mins
    80% of developers don’t feel it’s their responsibility if unethical products go live. Are they right? This episode of WIT: Women in Touch features a conversation among women in tech who believe this majority is not right. As a follow up to July's Coed: Ethics conference, a London tech ethics conference, we're grabbing a cuppa with women who are actively working on the ethics surrounding data science, decision making, scaling, coding, the psychology and motivation behind it all.

    Who should join? While our guests are awesome women in tech, the cases of Facebook, Uber and Volkswagen are not just isolated incidents and everyone at any level at any company faces ethical decisions every day. We think everyone can benefit from joining this discussion live or listening to the recording after! Applying a framework or an action plan to consider the ethical implications of your work is a business best practice.

    How can we move from writing oaths and manifestos to best practices?
