Fintech, Investments and Female Founders

Numbers from 2019 shows that only 8% of investments into European Tech Startups, and only 1% of Nordic investments, go to female or mixed-gender founding teams. As an investor, Finstart Nordic has the power to influence these numbers. But why should we do this? And how should we work to invest with diversity in mind?

To enlighten us and provide insight to the topic we have invited Kari Olrud Moen, Thea Messel and Anjali Bhatnagar. After the talks, there will be a panel discussion where the audience is welcome to participate with questions.
