About the workshop

Today, only 15% of angel investors are female and less than 2% of venture money goes to women. Hosted by Crunchmoms and delivered by Romanna Dada and Karen Heng from FlyFwd Ventures, they will teach the fundamentals of investing in startups. The 2022 Female Angels Movement is led by a group of entrepreneurs and investors who believe it's time to shift the female investment paradigm. The goal is to achieve gender equality in the investment ecosystem in the Middle East and North Africa. To achieve this, they are building a network of 2,022 female angel investors by the end of 2022.

Facilitated by Romanna Dada and Karen Heng of FLYFWD Ventures where they will use a fun role play of a pitch to an angel investor to help you navigate raising and the questions you should be asking as an angel investor!
