With keynote speaker Amanda Pullinger, CEO of 100 Women in Finance

Following on from our three sessions exploring inspiration, motivation and realisation as themes for female founders, we are delighted to announce a fourth session in the series. Emerging from our sessions to date have been several consistent themes of financing businesses to grow and the need for networks and networking to grow your business as female founders.

Join us to hear from Amanda Pullinger, CEO of ‘100 Women in Finance’. The organisation, with almost 20,000 members across four continents, focuses on empowering women in the finance industry and inspiring the next generation of pre-career young women. In this session, we will discuss and learn more about innovative ways to improve access to finance for female founders and the role of social capital (networks and community) in helping female founders build successful businesses and how to approach this critical issue.

Chaired by Rebecca Hill, Founder of Wise Sherpa.
