Female Founders Mission
Watch the round-up video from the mission:
Female founders are an important driver of growth for the UK economy. According to research recently released by Founders4Schools, women-led businesses make up 11 per cent of UK SMEs. The research also found that there are 762 companies in the UK, with a turnover up to £250m ($360m), which are also led by women and growing at a median rate of 30 per cent a year.
The four-day trade mission offered opportunities for founders to meet with senior representatives from Silicon Valley giants including Facebook, LinkedIn and Silicon Valley Bank, as well as Brits from the tech and business community who have successfully scaled their companies on the West Coast.
