Browne Jacobson - Diversity in spinouts, start-ups and early stage funding

Tuesday 22 June 2021

2pm - 3pm

Women may have broken down many of society’s professional and personal barriers, but significant gender disparity remains in the research and development community. Female founders account for just one in five university spinout founders, and only 12% of new spinouts have at least one female director at the helm.

We are delighted to be joined by those bucking the national trend to investigate why this is not necessarily the case in knowledge exchange. Join IP and commercial specialist Selina Hinchliffe and guests Kate Walker (Founder of ExpHand), Frankie Snobel (Founder of Tipplesworth), Megan Bingham-Walker (Co-Founder & CEO of Anasai), Sandy Reid (Investment Director, Mercia) and Bethany Watrous (Director Experience Heritage) as they discuss:

  • the barriers faced by women entrepreneurs entering the market and commercialising their intellectual property and know-how
  • the challenges faced by female entrepreneurs in seeking external funding and funding initiatives in place to specifically support women
  • why so few women are involved in university spinout companies
  • what can be done to improve female involvement in the spinout and investment community.

If you can't make the live session but would like to receive a copy of the on-demand recording, we would encourage you to still register for the event. This will ensure you receive a link to the recording as soon as it is available.
