n the most recent report from the Alison Rose Review of female entrepreneurship it has been found that a staggering £250 billion could be added to the UK economy if women in the UK started and scaled businesses at the same level for men.

That is why at The Stack World we are constantly looking at ways to celebrate and elevate women’s entrepreneurial talent. Sharing the do’s and don’ts as well as advice from both sides of the pitching table, from angel investors to founders we have taken a dive into our archive and brought together all of our best tips into one place.

Why did we create this guide?

Pitching and fundraising knowledge should never be siloed, and after years of work in this space, we have realised at The Stack World that it is the combination of network and knowledge that equals true power. That’s why this collection of resources is giving you the perspective of both investors and founders on everything from what to put in your deck, how to develop your business narratives, to the importance of being in tune with your body.

The Top-Tips:

  • No one knows your business better than you do.
  • Your team is an asset, share this with investors.
  • Have your deck ready to go, always.
  • Remember the power of storytelling, your narrative is key.
  • Passion is paramount.
