On Friday, 2 December, 11h30 CET, tune into our webinar with Kristine Leerbeck, founder and investor at Angella Invest, the first women angel investor platform from Denmark. The webinar is organized by Business Angels Europe and moderated by Jenny Tooth, Executive Chair of the UK Business Angels Association.
Finding funding is crucial to growing and scaling your business. But fundraising is a challenging, time-consuming effort – especially if you are a women entrepreneur. Women backing women capture what our women entrepreneurship ecosystem needs: more women investors sitting in front of women entrepreneurs. In this webinar, we will dive into this topic, giving top tips to women entrepreneurs and getting a view of the landscape from the Nordics. We do this with our expert speaker, Kristine Leerbeck.
Kristine Leerbeck is a woman with an entrepreneurial mindset. She is also a woman on a mission: To empower talented women! After working 20 years in the corporate world, of which 15 were in the financial sector, and the last five years with ESG startups and impact investment funds, she recently leapt to become an entrepreneur. Determined to make a difference for herself – and other women – she co-founded Angella Invest. Here, she is on a mission to close the gender gap in business angel investing, where only 1/10 of investors are women, and only ~1% of capital is invested in female-founded startups. She works to promote more women investors in startup companies. And more women in entrepreneur-, board and leadership roles.
