Simone Brummelhuis, director of Borski Fund, has been nominated by Business Angels Netzwerk Deutschland for Female Business Angel of the Year. She is the first Dutchman to have a chance.

Simone Brummelhuis will compete against three other candidates from Germany, Switzerland and Australia. It is the fourth time that the German investor network presents the award for female business angels in collaboration with Business Angels Europe (BAE). Never before has a Dutchman had a chance to win the prize for female investors.

More business angels
With the prize, the German businessangel network wants to draw attention to female investors. The organization aims to have a female share of business angels of 25 percent by 2025. "There are many committed female investors in Europe," the organization says in their press release, "and this will only increase in the future."

In the article on investors.nl Simone explains why women are in the minority in the investment world: 'That's partly because investors are mostly former entrepreneurs. So it's a chain reaction. By supporting female entrepreneurs, Borski Fund hopes to breed more female business angels.'
