Women moving forward

We celebrate female entrepreneurship every day of the year. This month we took the opportunity to shed some extra light on our fantastic female founders.

☝️📈 Since 2017 we started measuring and setting goals for what kind of companies we wanted to help build and the proportion of companies with female founders in our programs.

In 2017, 26% of our companies had at least one female founder. Today 2022 that figure stands at 75% which we are very proud of and shows that diversity and equality are going in the right direction.

⭐👩 Today, the proportion of female founders is one of our most important KPIs and something that permeates the entire business.

➡️ Follow the numbers and read more statistics about our female founders.

Happy reading. 

All the best,
The Sting team
