ABOUT THE INITIATIVE FROM ORGANIZERS

USEFUL

The ratio of female startups in Russia is comparable to global numbers, but their projects attract less investment. At the same time, female projects are crisis-resilient and have potential for growth.
In Russia, only 1 out of 7 female projects has attracted investments, but 1 out of 4 among male ones. Over 2016 - 2020, every year, only 1 out of 9 venture capital deals involved a female-founded startup, where in total 23 times less money was invested in female startups (4 % of invested funds) than in male ones.
Women in Russian Venture Capital 2021 — is the first survey in Russia that focuses on the role of women in the venture capital ecosystem prepared by Zerno Ventures.
Zerno Ventures — is the first VC impact fund in Russia with a gender lens. The goal of the fund is to form a venture project portfolio with at least 50% of female-founded projects.
