Investing in Women Scientists: Global Perspectives
Organized by Oxford Brookes University Business School (United Kingdom)

As part of the 2021 WEgate Summit we held a panel discussion on Scientists and Entrepreneurs: Women Tackling Global Challenges. That discussion highlighted that gender bias in accessing investments is a major barrier for women scientists to develop and grow their spinouts and start-up companies. This year WEgate Summit panel discussion brings together women investors who are leading change across the globe to support women entrepreneurs. This debate will focus on solutions and sharing good practice to tackle investment gender bias.
