Competitive Advantage and Diversity

As part of our Investment Series, we chatted to Jackie Waring, CEO of Investing Women and AccelerateHer about the importance of diversity both within your team and as part of your investment portfolio.

Jackie gave us a great insight into the importance of looking at different sectors and businesses that would have previously not been considered within an investment portfolio.

Jackie also touched on the value of recruiting and attracting a diverse talent pool and how this can provide a strong competitive advantage when you are pitching for investment.

We got a great introduction to the great work Investing Women are doing in supporting female-founded businesses to get investment and the success of the AccelerateHer competition.
