Global Invest Her is the first online platform only dedicated to Funding for Women Entrepreneurs. Our geographical focus to begin with is North America and Europe, with Latin America coming soon.

Created by a women entrepreneur specifically for women entrepreneurs, access exclusive interviews with successfully funded women entrepreneurs and investors who share what they are really looking for before making an investment.

We are a trusted source of information about the funding journey, a safe place to learn about funding and a global community, where you can connect and share funding information with other women entrepreneurs across the globe.

Looking for funding is difficult the first time around. We focus on helping women entrepreneurs from all sectors, who are specifically looking for seed capital up to Series A.

Once you know how to play the funding game, finding the next round is much easier - because of course - looking for funding never stops!

Unconscious bias plays a big role in the fact that only 4% of venture capital and 20% of venture capital went to women-led startups in the US - the world's biggest financial market.

This unconscious bias is in all our heads - that of investors and women entrepreneurs alike. To change perceptions, hearts and minds, we walk the talk by:

  • • Showcasing successful women entrepreneurs (you have to see what you can be!).
  • • Actively speaking at conferences to raise awareness about access to finance for women entrepreneurs.
  • • Engaging with investors, women entrepreneurs, accelerators, partners and service providers in the entrepreneurial ecosystem to get more women entrepreneurs funded.

Our Vision

To become global catalysts in the entrepreneurial ecosystem and re-ignitethe global economy through funding talented women entrepreneurs!

We see funding women entrepreneurs as the biggest untapped resource to re-ignite our economy. Today, only 37% of new businesses set up worldwide every year by women.

Imagine if we increased that to 50%? Imagine the impact on global GDP when the passion, energy and talent of women entrepreneurs fully contributes alongside that of men?

I truly believe that women entrepreneurs and leaders are the greatest untapped resource to re-ignite the economy. A passionate women’s advocate and regular contributor to the Huffington Post/ Linked In, I enjoy inspiring others and speak internationally on Funding for Women Entrepreneurs. As a dynamic catalyst, I use my curiosity, experience and partnership-focus to ensure I strategically add value to women entrepreneur, startup and corporate ecosystems.

Over 20 years in global Business Development and Consulting, I have worked with the C-suite of Fortune 500 multinationals on culture change transformations. I now apply that same dedication to finding the right customer-focused solution, to disrupt Access to Finance for Women Entrepreneurs.

As part of my work at Global Invest Her, I am also an advisor to several startups and non profits who support high growth women entrepreneurs and founded the Women Entrepreneurs Network in Paris.
