Scale Investors core purpose is to support entrepreneurial female founders and investors. We connect, invest and help deliver success in an effort to promote exceptional female led businesses and close the entrepreneurial gender-investment gap. There is a clear opportunity, with the market currently underinvesting in female entrepreneurs and investors despite clear research highlighting that female founded businesses outperform. Startups founded by women are significantly better financial investments, with a recent BCG study concluding that for every dollar of investment raised, female-run startups generate 10% more revenue than male-led companies and earn 35% higher return. We aim to activate additional capital investment from Scale Investors and via co-investment. We typically leverage 3-5 times additional capital from those who co-invest with Scale Investors across the ecosystem. COVID-19 has presented a great challenge with disproportionate impact on girls and women. We know what the research continues to clearly illustrate, investing in female entrepreneurs helps deliver outperformance which will help the Australian economy rebound. At the start of COVID-19, Scale Investors quickly pivoted to a completely virtual environment, this swift move enabled the organisation to emerge as a strong leader in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, resulting in huge investor engagement.
