Did you know only 6% of venture capital goes to women-led companies? In this episode, we unpack the bias – conscious and unconscious – clouding the judgement of investors when it comes to supporting companies focussed on or led by women.
We talk to Dr Sara Saeed Khurram who runs Sehat Kahani, a social enterprise in Pakistan that connects female doctors to patients in low-income communities using a telemedicine smartphone application. We hear about the inspiration for Sara’s work, her collaboration with IIX and determined drive to access funding (while being pregnant) and the language and techniques required to work within a male-dominated investment world.
