That’s not surprising. Carrying on greater equality in business is the right and intelligent thing to do. A Dow Jones report done two years ago showed that successful companies have more women executives in their rosters compared to unsuccessful businesses. The report concluded that more women at the top of the corporate ladder secures greater chances of the company’s success. Even VCs offer many hopeful opportunities for women-owned startups. It comes as no surprise really why the investment environment calls for more women to build and run their own businesses.
Several participants all the way from the Middle East and the United States convened with the rest of the women community for the 2nd Annual Nordic Women Investing in Women Summit this year. This group of powerful women shared their perspectives on institutional investing from a family office viewpoint, scaling growth companies in new and emerging markets as well as angel investing.
Swedish-born David Drake, chairman of LDJ Capital, a New York City private equity advisory firm, observes, “Women CEOs are highly competitive, yet caring for their employees. The ability to multi-task and meet deadlines are put to good use in managing a corporation."
This is the time for women-run investment funds, women-owned businesses and women-led startups to shine. Women are not much of a risk taker, so what accounts for their success? Women do their homework extremely well.
Hot discussions rolled as successful women operators and investors talked about the two sides of the innovation table. Katja Bergman of MOOR and Ann-Christine Langselius of Maya Global Solutions headed this talk. Annette Nordvall of Stockholms Affärsänglar and Sofia Falk of WimInves touched on the topic ‘Investing with a Gender Lens.’
Per Roman of GP Bullhound, Therese Engstrom of SIME and Anna Schauman of NOVARE AB shared their expertise on ‘Why Investing in Women is Good Business.” Several women also spoke on the Work-Life Balance topic ‘What does one do to succeed in a growing, ever-changing startup environment and what should women entrepreneurs focus on in achieving balance?’They were: Lisen Bratt Fredricson of Grevlunda, Astrid Friborg of Berries by Astrid, Therese Gedda of 30 Minute MBA and Tove Lewin of Competencer.
