Here come the girls...
It was with great privilege that I was in the company of my fellow finalists at the Venus Awards 2018 at The Waldorf, London on Monday night. Unfortunately, I didn’t win but it was an honour to be amongst so many talented, hard-working, inspirational women.
Although it was a night for celebration, I will come away from the whole experience with an even more determined resolve to help inspire, mentor and steer women to be their very best, in whatever path they choose.
In the last year, we have only been approached by just three female led businesses looking for investment and this statistic is representative across all industry sectors. Couple that with the fact that only 14% of eligible HNW females choose to invest in Start-ups and you will understand why this is an area that I would like to help change. There is a general feeling that we’re beginning to see a transition and I look forward to building a network of likeminded women (and men), working together to help accelerate this trend and to achieve great things in 2019.
Congratulations to the overall winners on the night but in my eyes, we were all winners!
