Spotlight on women in startups


Media Release | 17 October 2019


The Hall & Wilcox team is proud to launch our report, ‘Spotlight on women in startups’.

When we first put a call out for applicants to our accelerator, Frank Lab, we were surprised to discover that 95% of our initial applicants were from male-led startups. This prompted us to ask, ‘Why aren’t more women involved in the startup sector?’

We spoke to members of the startup ecosystem and reached out to our firm’s broader network to understand the reasons for the gender gap and how to address this.
