The following was published on the UKBAA website as part of their celebration of International Women's Day (8th March 2020). To see the full list of 20 women click this link.

At UKBAA, we are committed to championing women leaders in the early stage investment ecosystem and in the spirit of International Women’s Day on 8th March, we want to highlight some of the UK’s leading women angel investors. 

When we look at gender parity with an angel investment lens, we are presented with an ecosystem that has a distinct lack of female representation both in teams receiving investment and those deploying capital. We recognise the direct correlation that an increase in women angels has with an increase of investment in women-led teams, which is why we are committed to unlocking this untapped pool of “smart money” held by women across the UK. 

During the month of February, we asked our community to nominate standout women angels that not only support, mentor and inspire fantastic founders, but have also been integral in paving the way for other women to start investing. We are thrilled to celebrate the achievements of these 20 fantastic women angels and hope that they inspire more women taking the leap to start backing Britain’s founders.
