Podcast | The Male Perspective: Female Funding

Despite efforts to support and fund more female founders, a huge disparity still exists. Startup Heatmap’s research on Women Entrepreneurs in Europe shows only 15.5% of entrepreneurs in Europe are female and women raise 38% less than men when starting up a company under the same conditions.

In this episode of Girls in Tech podcast, we get the male perspective from Jonathan Abrams, Co-Founder and General Partner of 8-Bit Capital and Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Founders Den, who also gives some advice on how to escalate and increase venture capital for women.

Abrams discusses why the funding disparity between men and women persists in the tech industry, and shares what drives him to make a difference, support women’s progress in tech, and promote diversity and inclusion.

Jonathan Abrams is an engineer, entrepreneur, and investor. He has invested in over 50 startups, including AngelList, Slideshare, and Front. He currently serves as a board member at Girls in Tech, dedicated to diversity and inclusion in the tech industry.
