The Barriers and Opportunities for Women Angel Investing in Europe

Published on 12/03/2019

The Women Business Angels for Europe's Entrepreneurs WA4E has published a report that sheds light on the barriers and opportunities for women investors and business leaders. Partners from six EU countries surveyed 640 women business angels to discover what motivates them and to find out what obstacles they faced on the road to becoming angel investors.

This 28-page report summarises the key findings of online research, which was accompanied by one-on-one and focus group interviews. As such, the report reveals why women remain underrepresented in the world of business angels and entrepreneurs.

The results of the research will be incorporated into the outputs of the WA4E project, including training for women business angels as well as improving pitching skills of female entrepreneurs.
