The Lip Gloss Gap: Juliet Fallowfield, Fallow, Field & Mason

“More work can be done to demystify the intricacies of starting a business as well as what goes in to a raise”

Why do you think the female fundraising gap is so stark?

We need to encourage more women to start businesses to increase the quantity, then when ready to seek investment as the balance is still way off what it should be to reach equality.  The Allison Rose review reported an increase last year in female founded companies however this is still only 20% of new company registrations at Companies House.  If we can tackle the pipeline this will at least be a start.


Equality on the decision making side also needs to be achieved. The Harvard Business Review cites only 8% of VC investors are women. Fewer than 1% are black.
