Fundraising As Women Founders

Join Oxford Entrepreneurs Network (OxEN) for a special International Women’s Day 2021 Startup Bootcamp on fundraising strategies from successful women start-up founders. We will focus on how to execute a successful fundraising process remotely, tips for early stage founders, and key strategies for engaging with investors.

#IWD2021 #ChooseToChallenge

About the Speakers:

Catherine Berman, CEO and Co-founder of CNote

Catherine Berman is the CEO and Co-founder of CNote, an impact investment platform that helps large institutions, like corporations, banks, and foundations move deposits and capital into community investments to address racial justice, climate change, and other pressing social issues. She’s a three-time entrepreneur with experience building scalable businesses. Her last startup grew into a multi-million dollar firm in less than four years. Prior to CNote, she worked as a Managing Director at Charles Schwab focused on new market segments and predictive analytics. At the vanguard of impact investing, Catherine has spoken at events hosted by Stanford, Oxford, Google, The Economist, SoCap, Coinbase, and others to challenge conventional thinking about money and meaning.

Catherina has an MBA from the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.

Dr. Nicola Nice, CEO & Founder, POMP & WHIMSY

A seasoned entrepreneur, Nicola has been working in the world of spirits innovation for over a decade through the brand strategy and consumer insights agency THINK Conservatory, which she founded in 2007. A sociologist by training, she has dedicated her professional career towards understanding how consumers identify with categories and brands, and applying these insights to new idea generation and strategic brand positioning.

A specialist in liquor, fashion, beauty, and the female consumer, Dr Nice has consulted with and delivered new products for some of the largest global producers including Diageo plc, Bacardi Ltd and Gruppo Campari.

She holds a BA in Human Sciences from the University of Oxford, and a PhD in Sociology from Imperial College London.

Melania Edwards

Melania is part of the Oxford Angel Fund and sits on the board of the global Oxford Entrepreneurs Network. Her career spans across three continents: Asia, Europe, and the US, during which she held a variety of international finance roles, most recently as Vice President for HSBC’s Venture Capital coverage team, where she connected the dots in the global venture ecosystem. She is a strong advocate for advancing traditionally underrepresented groups in technology: she spearheaded the HSBC Women on the Rise in FinTech program, is an advisor to female entrepreneurs via Astia Angels, and is a mentor to several international start-ups. Melania holds a BA and MA in Economics and Management from Oxford University.
