Women Angels Survey


A realização de um survey para entender melhor as barreiras e motivações que as mulheres tem para se tornarem Business Angels foi essencial no âmbito do Projeto WA4E.

The aim of the research was to understand the common characteristics and drivers of women who do invest and to understand the barriers and challenges for women who do not invest; how might we reach the women who fit the profile, but don´t currently invest.

The Research was led by UK Business angels Association, the trade body for Angel early stage investing in the UK in partnership with Angel Academe, a leading angel network focusing on investing in women in technology.

The research comprised a detailed online questionnaire that reached out to a total of over 6.000 women across the six partner countries. By the end of the collection period, a total of 640 women, of which 310 women who were already angel investing and 330 women who were not angel investing, a useful split to benchmark the characteristics of these two groups.

The online research was accompanied by  a qualitative survey based on detailed interviews among 225 women across the 6 partner countries who had completed the survey to give a ore detailed personal perspective on women´s approach to angel investing.
