Although Innovation and disruption are a mantra for entrepreneurs the big-money worlds of enture capital and startups are known for some remarkably outdated attitudes towards women.
CEO of Heads Over Heels, Fiona Boyd was recently intereviewed by Voyeur about the changing landscape of the female entrepreneur ecosystem and how there are increasingly more support programs and networks to ensure a rise in women launching startups.
“The thing that is changing rapidly is the organisations that are now around to support women, and there’s more collaboration across the ecosystem. We are working with SheStarts (an accelerator program for women entrepreneurs) and Springboard (which helps attract funding). Heads Over Heels runs portfolio events, and educates and helps to connect entrepreneurial women with the skills they need to build their business – such as finance, marketing and distribution.”
