Women in crowdfunding


The Crowdfunding industry has a good story to tell on women leadership.
One of my key messages about the disruptive and “democratising” promise of the crowd economy is how it empowers people and allows them to reimagine themselves in roles that were once gated or withheld from them. Crowdfunding has that same promise and whilst the jury may still be out as to how well that is being realised from the crowdfunding project standpoint, from the industry side the sector has a good story to tell and one we perhaps don’t remind ourselves enough of.

From the very beginning women have played a leading and influential role of leadership, innovation and entrepreneurialism in crowdfunding and this is something we should both acknowledge and celebrate.
