Join us for the South West Women Angel Investment Forum taking place in Bristol!

 The South West Women Angel Investment Forum, part of the UKBAA National Women Angel Investment campaign, will bring together angels from across the South of England to explore opportunities to improve the gender balance in the early stage investment ecosystem in the UK.

Taking place in Bristol's hub for innovation, Engine Shed, this forum offers an important opportunity to explore the barriers for women to seeking to angel invest, discuss recent reports from the British Business Bank on Women and VC, and the Alison Rose report on Women entrepreneurship by HM Treasury, and most importantly, provide a platform for much needed conversation.

 The South West Women Angel Investment Forum will take place with the support of Innovate UK and SETsquared and seeks to bring together all the key players in the early stage investment ecosystem take the necessary steps to transform the current investment landscape to better support both women angels and founders.
