Coverage for Untapped Unicorns


The Entrepreneurs Network’s report on the Untapped Unicorns – the underfunded female entrepreneurs – has received widespread media coverage.

In summary the report showed that there is an evident gender bias against female entrepreneurs receiving funding from capital providers; despite the fact that female-led businesses are less likely to fail. The Entrepreneurs Network’s Annabel Denham comments that this data is frustrating and recommends a change in education, culture and data collecting to combat the evident bias.
