Women-founded start-ups generated more revenue per Euro invested: women-led businesses outperformed men-led business by nearly twice the capital productivity. Yet in 2020 women-founded start-ups raised just 1% of investment in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), whilst 5% went to mixed-gender founding teams. The remaining 94% went to all-men teams.
In this context, an international panel of innovation leaders will address questions such as:
• What will it take for companies to seize the opportunity to achieve greater productivity through greater diversity?
• What can innovation leaders do to encourage the promotion of women to leadership positions?
• What success stories are out there and what are their key ingredients?
