IDC European Woman in Venture Capital

EUROPEAN WOMEN IN VC IDC #EUR148997722 © IDC 2022 41 It goes without saying that access to funding is a huge factor in the success of any new business. As many diverse entrepreneurs are seeking alternative forms of funding to fund their capital needs and grow their businesses, private equity and venture capital funds must continue to evolve to be more representative of the field of innovators and entrepreneurs. At EY, we set out to support women- led companies, particularly as they raise capital. We help to dispel uncertainty and demonstrate to women entrepreneurs that they have many sources and options to acquire funds in the current climate. EY’s Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ program creates a platform for this education, in addition to networking, peer learning and ‘door opening’ to the investor circuit. We focus specific learning sessions on capital raising and how to be ‘investor ready’. With an over 30 year track record in supporting entrepreneurs, we also provide access to our broader entrepreneurship ecosystem, including VCs and other potential sources of funding.
