Event description
La French Tech Women & SC Ventures by Standard Chartered are thrilled to invite you to our Female Business Angel event

About this Event

A year ago, La French Tech Singapore #Women chapter officially launched the “Dare to be Female Business Angel” initiative.

Our motto: helping women getting started and empowering them with practical advice.

Women remained under-represented when it comes to tech entrepreneurship and investments, be it at the Venture Capital or Business Angel stage. We believe diversity and inclusion is a win-win for the ecosystem, startups and ultimately for their financial backers.

After 3 sold-out workshops on startup due-diligence, we are thrilled to invite you to our 2019 Female Business Angel event, in collaboration with SC Ventures by Standard Chartered.

We are excited to have veteran and newbies angel investors and entrepreneurs as they will share about their personal journey into the world of angel investing: what to expect from startups you are investing in, how to get a strong deal flow from the start and how diversity can lead to better investment decisions.
