Venture Capital and Female Founders


The British Business Bank, Diversity VC and BVCA are joining forces on an industry-wide initiative to build the first clear picture of the representation of women – and diversity more broadly – in the pipelines of UK VC firms.

We are working closely with individual funds to create and combine anonymous datasets that should allow the industry to pinpoint its challenges and work together on potential solutions.

All UK VC funds of any stage are invited to participate.
