The numbers are bleak – 11% of investment partners at venture capital firms are women and 15% of angel investors are women. And according to this handy infographic on investing in women, women investors are far more apt to be directly connected to and able to attract female-led ventures. Women invest in women where there are women to be found.
A solution to the low rate of women entrepreneurs receiving investment to go big with their ventures would be to increase the pipeline of women angel investors and venture capitalists.
