UK female founders are being ignored by male investors, reveals report

A significant number of female entrepreneurs in the UK believe that male investors ignore them when they start pitching their business plan, according to new statistics released by AllBright.

The survey of 520 female-led start-ups and aspiring business owners has revealed that 22% feel they hadn’t been heard when speaking to investors – significantly reducing their chances of raising finance.

Just 2.19% of all global venture money went to female founders in 2016 – strongly suggesting a bias within the industry exists.
