How we Built a VC Backed Beauty Business with Renude

Join us for an insightful and engaging networking event, Women of Antler Evening with Renude. This event is an ideal platform for aspiring entrepreneurs to connect, learn, and get inspired.

In the UK in 2023, we’ve seen a three-fold increase in funding to women-led businesses. While that sounds impressive, over 20% of women-led companies still secured only 3.5% of venture capital funding in the first half of 202​​3. At Antler, we know that exceptional entrepreneurs come from everywhere, but opportunity is not. We believe in making a difference. More than 30% of our portfolio already has at least one female founder.
