About Female Founders
Female Founders is designed to connect female-founded health and life science companies with LSX’s network of investors and experienced life science professionals, provide the resources to help women raise more capital and facilitate knowledge-sharing between founders and industry veterans.
Female founders received just 2.7% of all venture capital investment in 2019. Being higher than ever before, that was billed as a win. In 2020 the percentage of venture capital invested in women fell back to pre-2017 levels. Diversity might be a hot topic, but the numbers tell a much bleaker story. We’re going to help change that.
We believe that nurturing female founders has a profound positive impact on global health and global economies. LSX have a strong track record of stimulating investment into European health and life sciences companies. Now, we want to put that expertise towards improving investment, mentorship and business partnerships for women in Europe’s health and life science sectors.
