While Angel Investment is the most significant source of risk capital for startups and early stage businesses across Europe, the proportion of women business angels of the total number of angel investors remains extremely low.  
The WA4E project has concluded a study of the obstacles and motivation factors for women angels. We invite you to a discussion of the findings and recommendations of the survey (find it here).

This event is kindly hosted by MEP Kumpula-Natri (S&D, FI).
