My passion & work with Startups and Women Founders!
Startups, Women & Under Estimated Founders
Women are twice as likely to cite absence of a strong support system as an obstacle to owning a business, and the lack of access to assets affects women entrepreneurs’ abilities to obtain loans and raise capital.
On the other hand, African women have been termed as the future of the African continent. It is the only region globally, with the highest number of female entrepreneurs. Even though they boast a huge potential, they remain one of the least untapped resources in the continent.
This is where Dali Spaces & InvestFem come in.
I was born and raised in a small communal village in Taita, Kenya. At the very core of everyday life, the community was built on shared experiences—their wins, losses, and challenges, supporting each other holistically so each individual could grow.
Wanting to share these values with women globally, I reached out to my friends, leaders, and fellow founders, Andrea Dunlop and Nadja Van der Veer as they shared a strong connection, mutual respect and deep commitment to creating opportunities for women.
‘A single bracelet does not jingle.’’
African proverb, meaning: It takes more than one person or it takes many to affect change.
Together, our first-hand experience of overcoming challenges in business allowed us to create Dali Spaces, a community that enables women business owners to succeed. Named after my mother, Dali Spaces was christened in honour of the powerful, influential, and resilient women who inspired me, and will reflect and stand for those who come after.
The Power of The Collective
Dali Spaces is a digital global community that empowers, enables, and supports women entrepreneurs. We provide access to investors, mentors, resources, events, and a holistic environment conducive to propel female-founded entrepreneurial success.
Female entrepreneurs are twice as likely to cite absence of a strong support system as an obstacle to owning a business, and the lack of access to assets affects women entrepreneurs’ abilities to obtain loans and raise capital. Our goal is to lower the barriers that female entrepreneurs face and provide an equal landscape to launch, grow, and scale businesses.
In line with our vision of a world in which women have equal opportunities, we are committed to contributing to the United Nations defined Sustainable Development Goals: no poverty, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, and to reduce inequality by 2030.
Access to Capital
Entrepreneurship is one of the most important drivers of innovation, economic growth, and employment opportunities. Yet, gender inequality in venture capital investments is ubiquitous worldwide -- meaning one of the biggest roadblocks for women entrepreneurs is getting access to funds.
At InvestFem, we are committed to breaking down these barriers, unleashing the power of women entrepreneurs, and accelerating success by connecting investors to female business owners easily, and quickly.
Our mission is to empower, break barriers, and accelerate success for female entrepreneurs. We are committed to building a comprehensive network that connects women founders and co-founded companies with investors who believe and will invest in their potential.
