The partnership represents DC Advisory’s continued commitment to reducing inequalities across the UK investment and deal-making marketplace.

Since inception in 2014, Angel Academe investors have helped catalyse over £100m of co-investment into female founded tech start-ups from angel investors and venture capital firms.

We all know that there is a deficit in funding and fostering female entrepreneurship in the UK. Instead of commenting on it from the sidelines, this partnership is us trying to be a part of the solution.

Richard Madden, CEO, DC Advisory UK

We’re delighted to welcome DC Advisory to our carefully curated roster of mission-aligned partners! They understand that only by making investment work better for female tech founders at the start of their growth journeys will they see better gender diversity in the mid market and later.
