Borski Fund investing in companies that reduce the gender gap.
Picture this: 5% of all Venture Capital investment go to diverse teams made up of both males and females. Only 1% is invested in all-female teams. This leaves 94%(!) of VC investments that end up at all-male teams. At the same time, research shows that diverse teams are more innovative and perform better overall.
We believe in diversity, gender equality and fair chances. We invest in female entrepreneurs because we want to build great companies with them, because we want them to reach their full potential, because we are a natural business partner, and because we have a network that can help facilitate their goals. It is vitally important that innovation by female entrepreneurs is encouraged more.

“Simone Brummelhuis helped me with the financing of my company before we had a tested business model. After that, we consulted with experts that we were able to approach through Simone & Laura and discussed the business model frequently. Laura subsequently helped me enormously with financing issues. The entrepreneurial experience within the TheNextWomen network and their method of motivation works very well for me. I can always contact them for questions.”

Simone connected us with experts who advised us on growth, as well as with informal investors who have domain knowledge about our sector. Additionally, TheNextWomen crowd fund invested in us at the beginning and Laura's team helped us improve our financial model.
