“Susan Oliver introduces Scale. In the US the number of women investing into start-ups reached record levels last year. Women made up 21.8% of active angel investors in the US in 2012.
Golden Seeds, the inspiration for Scale, was the fifth most active angel group. Our vision is that Scale Angels become a critical mass in angel investing in Australia.”
“Our purpose is to support women to be successful investors as well as women entrepreneurs to be successful.”
One of the Salons at the June 2013 We Own It Summit was “Who, What, When, Where, How: An International Perspective on Outreach and Training of Women Investors” which highlighted the importance of Angel investment training women. We agree. We will equip Scale Angels with the Angel investor education and networking opportunities to give them confidence to invest in high growth, gender diverse businesses at an early stage in their development.”
