WIN empowers women to strengthen their financial position and participation in innovation by learning to invest and by investing together in startups.
WIN lowers the barriers that hinder women's participation in direct investments by offering startup-investment training, access to relevant investment opportunities, and a co-investment network.
Startups – or early-stage companies designed to scale-up quickly- are revolutionizing age-old industries with the click of a button. Their innovative solutions make our lives easier and better, and some are solving the most complex environmental and social issues.
Few of them succeed, but those that do, bring a significant return on investment for their investors, create new jobs and define the products and services of the future.

Be part of an exciting journey
As an investor, you can influence the company’s direction and growth and help it succeed with capital and advisory.
Be part of the innovation
Support the solutions you believe in will make the world a better place, with your capital and your participation.
Even in the Nordic countries, some of the most gender-equal nations, the male-female wealth gap is significant. In Norway, for example, women have 38% less wealth than men, partly because of their low participation in investment activities.
The low participation of women in investments is due to the lack of knowledge on how to invest, a lack of networks and of role models.
Most women require a sense of mastery before taking action: learning how to do something before doing it.
Women's motivations to invest go beyond achieving a return on investment. With a particular take on sustainability and social impact, traditional instruments are not attractive enough.
Women's financial circumstances are different: women around the world experience a pay-gap, contribute less to retirement and bear the burden of childcare's impact on their careers.
Why for women?
To achieve structural change,
we must do things differently.
WIN is a catalyzer of change with a Learn-to-Invest training program for women and a Network for women to invest together.
