It’s widely known that the majority of venture money still goes to startups that have no women on their founding team. According to PitchBook’s latest report, in the US, while there was a 13% increase in VC funding to startups overall, the amount that went to female founders was less than in 2019 - only 2.2 percent of venture capital investment was directed to female-only founding teams (down from 2.6% in 2019) with just 12 percent invested into male and female founding teams.
At Accelerating Asia, so far we’re bucking the trend with 40 percent female-led ventures - 4 times the amount the average venture fund. We’d like to keep growing this number and invest in more female founders, ladies please join the waitlist for our next cohort - we’re looking for you!
For International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we wanted to shine a light on just that - the products and solutions they are developing across the region, their current traction and the businesses these awesome founders are building.
