"We are thrilled to have them on board with us to support women as we work to strengthen the tech ecosystem globally and create an environment where women founders and funders can thrive,” said She Loves Tech Cofounder Rhea See.
This partnership aims to ensure that founders are supported with resources and access to a global network of female-led venture capitalists for co-investment and a global ecosystem of industry domain and technical experts. R3i Ventures’ in-house Navigators provide deep technical and co-selling expertise for faster go-to-market, a community for mentoring, skilling, and funding.
R3i is now calling for expressions of interest from governments, corporates, not for profits and investors who wish to play a role in their region and contribute to this important platform.
“Women’s economic inclusion plays an integral role in Asia and Europe’s economic recovery, stated R3i’s Founding General Partner, Leesa Soulodre. “This commitment to economic development is intended to further a shared vision of greater sustainability as we work together post-pandemic to transform our planet and improve transparency, collaboration and gender inclusion in capitalism.”
With female workforce participation globally at only 37% and less than 50 women-led startups in the early stage across many core markets, significant capacity and capability development is needed.
“Startups in the R3i - She Loves Tech community gain access to the world’s best technology platforms via the House of X Perks program, dedicated economic empowerment programs, learning resources, and connectivity to a global ecosystem across the world’s best research institutions.”
