#Fundwomen: How To Support ELLE’s Campaign To Close The Gender Funding Gap | ELLE UK

Women receive just 1p for every £1 of venture capital investment in the UK. To mark International Women’s Day 2022, ELLE UK has launched its #fundwomen campaign, to challenge venture capitalists and the UK government to urgently improve funding for female inventors and entrepreneurs.
