By Amy Lewin 17 December 2019 Female angel investors are in the minority in Europe — at just 14% of the angel community in the UK, 9% in Spain and 5% in France — and that has a notable knock-on effect on the number of female founders raising early-stage funding. It’s time that changed. “There’s a correlation between the number of female angel investors and investment into female founders,” Sophia Bendz, a partner at venture capital fund Atomico and a prominent female angel investor, told Sifted. “If there’s a female investment partner at a VC firm — or a female angel involved — it creates positive momentum for women.” In collaboration with women in tech community Femstreet, Sifted is building a list of female angel investors and syndicates in Europe. We have a fairly extensive list already, but we’d love to discover some smaller groups and lone ranger investors too. With this list we hope to: raise the profile of female angels investing in Europe help female angels engage with and support one another make it easier for founders (especially female founders) to get in touch with relevant female angels demystify angel investing — and encourage more women to consider it If you’re a female angel who would like to take part, please submit your details here. Or if you’d prefer email Amy at Sifted directly.
