Investment in startups increases year on year. However, funding for female founders or female-led startups is yet to see a similar rise in investment. As per the SaaS company PitchBook, last year, all-women founded companies received merely 1% of the total capital invested in venture-backed startups in Europe. To take note of such a huge disparity in funding and help female-led startups gain momentum, PitchBook has announced a new European VC Female Founders Dashboard, which highlights VC investments in female-founded European startups.

The new dashboard introduced by PitchBook enables one to search for female-led startups that have received investment. It also enables one to tweak their search query via the tool to customise the data. This lets users figure out how much investment was made in a particular segment of a startup. It can be helpful since there’s also an option to enable filtering results by female-only founded startups or startups with male and female co-founders.
