Women-led business angel network receives funding to expand its membership +

Women-led angel group Mint Ventures has received funding from Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Government’s Scottish Technology Ecosystem Fund (STEF) for a series of roadshows to encourage more women to become angel investors, and help women-led companies access investment.

Just last week the Rose Review 2022 of Female Entrepreneurship confirmed access to finance remains the no.1 barrier for women starting and growing businesses. In response, the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) established a UK-wide Women Business Angel Taskforce, of which Mint Ventures is a founding member.

Mint Ventures’ roadshows are part of a new programme of UK events called ‘Women Backing Women’. This transformational initiative will tap into the collective power, expertise and financial capital of women to help other women start and grow their businesses.

Taking place throughout March and April in Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, St Andrews, Edinburgh and the Borders, and collaborating with several Scottish business angel groups, the events offer potential women investors and entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn about angel investment, ask questions and be inspired in a safe-space environment.
