Diverse teams create more value. Here's how we'll get there.

As the Nordic tech scene continues to grow, gender diversity in the field is at a standstill. We need more female investors, and we need more women to realise that they, indeed, have the power and potential to become investors themselves.

Nordic Female Investor Meeting brings together some of the most prominent voices on how to increase the number of female investors. From academics to business angels, our speakers have done everything from proven gender bias in venture capital, to founding venture capital firms themselves.

Brought to you by Minc supported by Almi Invest, EY and Connect.
