WIN empowers women to strengthen their financial position and participation in innovation by learning how to invest and by investing together in startups.
Why Become A Startup Investor?
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.
Own a piece of a company. Take the risk of investing in innovators. When the startup succeeds, you will earn a profit that can potentially outperform investments in any other asset class.
Be part of an exciting journey. As an investor, you can get involved and influence the company’s direction and growth.
Be part of the innovation. Support the solutions you believe in with your capital and your participation.
Why For Women?
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 and a lack of
networks and role models.
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.
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.
