Why do we need it?
We think the underrepresentation of women founders in cleantech can not be justified.
Some of the reasons for it are structural, legacy issues, slow to shift.
But some challenges, we can address right now.
Shining a light on women founders and investors will
improve visibility, provide role models and create new networks.
We want to help all investors to cast a wider net, and to evaluate all companies fairly.
Our goal: of VC money going to UK cleantech companies, 50% have at least one woman founder.
