Nina Portier Reinhart, SICTIC Board Member and Diversity Program Leader, is regularly organising Lady Investor Dinner private events where she invites women who are business angels or aspiring business angels to discuss startup investments and their experience as business angels, as well as future investments.
We welcome all ladies interested in investing, and those attending do not need to be members of neither SICTIC or our diversity partners 100 Women In Finance or WomenWay. This is a networking event, aimed at creating awareness and also a stronger network for women investing.
If you would like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a registration code.
We wanted to learn more about Women Business Angels and what motivated them to gather and foster more diversity at SICTIC. We created the Diversity Survey to gather information on their motivations to become Business Angel Investors and on the other hand what was keeping them from starting.
- In Switzerland, out of the financed companies, 45% have at least one woman in top management or on the board of directors. These companies received 76% of the total invested sum. However, only 10 out of 175 start-ups have a female CEO: these companies received about 2% of investment. [Source: Swiss Venture Capital Report 2018]
