What makes women angels “most valuable investors”?
Padmaja Ruparel, Co-founder, Indian Angel Network thinks women entrepreneurs-turned-investors are the most valuable investors.
“Apart from money, they bring valuable mentorship and guidance to women entrepreneurs as they have already traversed the path and solved the challenges. Every woman investor inspires many more women to become entrepreneurs and create their own success path,” she says.
She also finds it heartening to see women angels engage with entrepreneurs, take investment decisions, and work with founders, despite many of them not being entrepreneurs.
“This is a welcome sign as it unlocks valuable capital for startups. But good investors invest in good entrepreneurs, irrespective of gender,” she remarks.
