At Scale we empower Australian investors to connect, invest and succeed. We provide investment and support to diverse founders in early stage businesses.
Since 2013 Scale Investors have been activating early stage female led organisations and building a supportive and sustainable network that invests in female founders today to create the female investors of tomorrow.
The Scale Angel network is an exceptional cohort of accomplished people who believe that investing in and supporting talented diverse teams will create the iconic businesses of tomorrow.
Of the total venture capital funding available only 2% is deployed to women, yet female owned companies generate more revenues with less investment. Women are two times more likely to take social impact of a deal seriously however are not taken seriously despite having 50% of the good ideas*.
The evidence is clear, McKinsey and Company’s 2015 “Why Diversity Matters” research found the top quartile of gender diverse public companies are 15% more likely to outperform industry medians. It starts with us; the Scale Investor network has a powerful role to play to activate early stage female led organisations.
We welcome all investors who share our vision of maximizing returns by supporting early stage businesses that value gender diverse leadership.
