Female Entrepreneurs: Funding Growth

Mar 14, 2017 / Blog

In 2016, only three companies that floated on the London Stock Exchange were led by female CEOs.

On Tuesday 28th March, finnCap will host a celebration of female founders and a roundtable discussion to explore how more women can follow in their footsteps.

This discussion will take place at the Haymarket Hotel, 1 Suffolk Place, London from 8:30 – 10:00. It will be hosted by finnCap founder and CEO, Sam Smith.

From access to funding, support and mentorship, this event will bring together some of the UK’s most exciting businesses to plan a clear roadmap for future success. Female Entrepreneurs: Funding Growth will create a network spanning the financial ecosystem, dedicated to supporting female business leaders.

We are pleased to welcome contributions from Dr. Denise Scots-Knight, CEO and co-founder of Mereo BioPharma and Gail Ganney, Managing Director of Guscio, two of the women who led companies that floated in 2016.

Further contributions will be shared by Debbie Wosskow OBE, founder of Allbright, the female founder investment company and Vin Murria, founder of Advanced Computer Software PLC.
