Czechia has achieved notable success in BA investments and several indicators reveal areas that could benefit from targeted assistance.  

The Czechia’s GDP per capita, at around $25,000, surpasses the EU median of $21,000. Yet, compared to economically robust EU countries like Germany ($46,000) and the Netherlands ($52,000), there exists a noticeable gap. Supporting the angel investment ecosystem can catalyse economic growth, narrowing this divide and elevating the nation’s economic standing.  

In the “Starting a Business” index, the Czechia holds the 39th position, slightly trailing the EU median ranking of 30th. This highlights an opportunity for enhancement in simplifying business initiation processes.  

Supporting female-led startups and encouraging female investors will not only promote inclusivity but also unlock untapped potential in the ecosystem.
