Female-led business ventures empower Melbourne investors

Scale helps investors and entrepreneurial women connect, invest and succeed.

Since launching in 2013, Scale Investors’ community of 100 Scale Angels have collectively invested nearly $6m in 10 female-led business ventures.

The female focused investor network’s vision is to equip women to become successful investors whose wealth is enhanced through connection with, investment in, and support of women entrepreneurs in early stage business.

Typically, on a global platform, 95 per cent of angel investors and venture capital partners are men. Less than 10 per cent of entrepreneurs successful in raising capital are female. Scale is unique as it focuses on women as investors and entrepreneurs.

In 2013, Laura McKenzie was recruited as the inaugural Scale CEO. Laura is passionate about unlocking the potential of early stage businesses and connecting female entrepreneurs with capital. She and her team of executives have set their sights on long-term success in supporting entrepreneurial women.

Laura and the executive team at Scale Investors have created a community. It’s fun, and creative – some of Scale’s investors have started businesses together, sit on boards together, and have developed great new friendships. Scale Angels are actively involved in Start-up Victoria, MAP and other initiatives supporting entrepreneurs in Victoria.
