Crowdcube announced on Monday it has formed a partnership with Global Invest Her, an online funding community specifically for female entrepreneurs. The equity crowdfunding platform reported it is set to help elevate and educate female entrepreneurs and give them the best advice to better prepare themselves for their funding journeys.
“This new affiliation with Global Invest Her allows Crowdcube to further provide female founders to access a wealth of knowledge and coaching to spring-board their companies to the next level. Global Invest Her has a global community of female founders and provides them with practical resources, including access to mentors, exclusive funding journeys and essential educational assets. At Crowdcube, female entrepreneurs have a historic funding rate of 75% compared to the 55% achieved by their male counterparts. In the first three months of 2017 alone, female founders have successfully raised nearly £6 million on Crowdcube. With Global Invest Her, we expect this figure to increase as more female entrepreneurs turn to Crowdcube’s 400,000-strong investor community to raise funds.”

Together, we will help close the Funding Gap for female founders!”
