Women are underrepresented in angel investing around the world. It is estimated that in the UK women hold 45% of wealth but only 14% of UK business angels are women. In Ireland, this issue is more pronounced where only 8% of active angels within HBAN are women.
As part of HBAN's commitment to encouraging diversity in the start-up and angel investment ecosystem, HBAN are hosting a female investor masterclass on Wednesday 20 November at 5.30pm, in Mason Hayes & Curran offices on Barrow Street. Eimear Lyons, Senior Associate on the Corporate team at Mason Hayes & Curran, will discuss the main legal considerations for angel investing.
The masterclass will include an introduction to our network, a panel discussion with new and experienced investors and pitches from early stage, innovative start-ups to give attendees an idea of what HBAN has to offer. This will be followed by a drinks reception and networking.
The goal of this event is to encourage women to become more active as angel investors in Ireland. We welcome anyone that is interested in learning more about becoming an investor in addition to existing members of HBAN.
