Investing with Purpose: Women in Capital Making a Difference with Naseem Sayani

Less than 2% of all venture funding every year goes to women-founded businesses. But while that number has not changed in recent years, the amount of women actively investing has increased significantly. Our mission at How Women Lead is to create opportunities and access for women investors to help increase the amount of funding for women in the venture space. Naseem Sayani, Co-founder and GP of Emmeline ventures, joined Julie for a LinkedIn Live that we’re sharing with you today. This week’s episode 116 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about investing with purpose and making a difference in investing as women! 

In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Naseem Sayani is sharing the importance of investing in women-founded companies and actionable steps you can take right now to begin your investing journey today. 

Naseem Sayani is the Co-founder and Director of Emmeline Ventures, a female-founded early-stage fund investing in ambitious female founders building businesses that are helping women, in particular, manage their health, build their wealth, and live in a cleaner, safer world. Naseem has over 20 years of expertise in investing and business-building, and has experience as an angel investor on her own.

Some of the talking points Julie and Naseem go over in this episode include:

  • The underrepresentation of women in venture capital and how the numbers have changed in the past few years.

  •  How women-led companies perform better for their investors, are more capital efficient, and continue to grow despite challenges in the industry.

  • The importance and power of values-based investing.

  • Making entering the venture capital space clear and accessible for women everywhere.
