The first year of the co-founded Borski Fund is finished. We would like to show you here what has been done and achieved.
Three years ago we started to think about a large fund focusing on diversity and technology. Last year our dream came through by launching Borski Fund, named after Johanna Borski (1764 - 1846) who was the first woman to buy shares in De Nederlandsche Bank, in presence of Queen Máxima and Klaas Knot.
One year in, despite these difficult and uncertain times, we managed to put together a good team, generate publicity, create a gigantic deal flow, and we have worked very hard to talk to as many female entrepreneurs as possible. We managed to add 4 awesome participations to our fund, and we have a beautifully filled pipeline for 2021. We believe we can make an important contribution and substantially increase the % of capital that is invested in female entrepreneurship. We are proud of our investors supporting us. They put trust in us for our mission and our journey. The results we have achieved are outlined in the following infographic.
With our team, we would like to thank you for your involvement in our mission to reduce the investment gap.
