VCs & Startups - Still A Boys’ Club?

VCs & Startups - Still A Boys’ Club?

According to a Harvard Business Review Article, In 2021, only 3% of VC investments went to female-only founding startups.

Less than 15% of checkwriters for VC investments are women.

Female founders are underrepresented in the VC playground.

For female founders who are looking for funding from VCs, what can be their recourse?

We speak to Andre Sequerah and Shan Li, Manager Partners from ScaleUp Malaysia to discuss the gender equality gap among VC investors and female founders.
