Come and join us for Cupcakes and Bubbles to celebrate Scotland’s dynamic and rapidly growing community of women entrepreneurs and female business angels; passionate to inspire more women to go for serious growth.
Meet some of our business angels and find out what it’s like to be an angel from Founder Jackie Waring and dynamic Business Angel Lorraine Porter. Mix with inspiring women entrepreneurs running great local businesses like Bad Girl Bakery (whose cakes you’ll be enjoying!) and Wooha Brewing; amongst others. And hear from well-known broadcaster, presenter and valued friend of Investing Women - Nicky Marr.
Exciting announcements will be made around big events in 2017; including the invitation to GO FOR IT in the next AccelerateHER competition.

When & Where
Investing Women Angels Limited
Investing Women is a growing community of women angel investors; women entrepreneurs seeking growth and those who want to help both. We are more than an angel group; and are driven by more than the money.
Scotland has one of the most active business angel communities globally and the UK has the best tax environment for angel investment there has ever been.
But, despite women holding 46% of UK wealth; at best only 5% of Scotland’s angel investors are female.
It’s time for change. Scotland’s businesses and economy need new investment for growth. Investing Women is leading change to help more women into this space.
We know there are too few women angels in Scotland and too few women entrepreneurs accessing angel investment. Evidence from the US shows that building awareness and knowledge is core to changing this; hence our focus on workshops like A Day with the Angels and many other events. In the USA 25% of investors are female; bringing their talent , knowledge and expertise as well as their capital. We need to aspire first to achieve the same targets here in Scotland and, ultimately, equal numbers of male and female investors.
