Our Mission

Our Why

Getting Funded is harder for women entrepreneurs. Today, women-only founding teams only access 2.8% of all venture capital worldwide and this average figure has not changed in 30 years! (source Harvard Kennedy School)

Latest research* shows that funding Women Entrepreneurs is a $5 Trillion Opportunity for the Global Economy and can increase global GDP by 6%.(source BCG).

Our mission is to help make that happen.

Our Vision

Together, we will re-ignite the Global Economy, By Funding Women Entrepreneurs

Our Story

How it all began

When our founder, Anne Ravanona first learned about the $1.7 Trillion Gender Funding Gap in 2012, she decided to do something about it. She always knew she would become an entrepreneur and when she life threw her some bitter lemons, she knew it was time. So in 2013, before it was trendy to talk about funding for female founders, she set up Global Invest Her as the go-to platform for Women Entrepreneurs to learn about Funding.

Building a deep international understanding of The Funding Gap

Our early years were mainly B2C focused, to really understand funding from the female founders perspective through our events, webinars, and trailblazing women interviews. We also spread the word about funding women entrepreneurs to female founders, investors and ecosystem players through our TEDx and speaking at tech and entreprreneurship conferences. Global Invest Her became known as a global brand with high quality information on funding for female founders, and built strong relationships and partnerships with investors and global funding ecosystem players.

Birth of our Brand

We worked with global branding specialist Gustavo Stecher at Menos es Mas to bring our new brand visual identity to life.

Moving forward: Supporting the Funding Ecosystem

We now focus on both B2B and B2C, helping more funding ecosystem players (investors, corporates, accelerators, government bodies and women entrepreneur networks) scale their actions to support more female founders getting funded worldwide. Since 2016, we’ve worked with AXA, EY and Dell, Enterprise Ireland and ecosystem partners reach out to and support female founders and convince more investors to fund them. We’re only getting started! Founders, Investors, Allies - let's change the Funding Game, make it more inclusive and grow the global economy. The more women entrepreneurs we get funded, the bigger the impact we’ll make and all benefit from.
