Women In Leadership Series

“The time is long overdue to encourage more women to dream the possible dream.”

Sheryl Sandberg, Former COO Meta

Numbers on female leadership in tech in 2021:

  • Only 22 women have launched and led their startup to IPO
  • Women make up only 6% of CEOs in Europe
  • Female founders received only 2.2% VC funding in 2020
  • Fewer than 20% of managers in tech are women

To inspire a new generation of women leaders, meet women making the ‘possible dream’ a reality.

In celebration of the International Women’s Day and to inspire a new generation of women leaders we at AlbionVC are hosting a series of conversations with women founders and CEOs in the AlbionVC family.

In the first part of the series Jess Bartos, Investor at AlbionVC and Jane Reddin, Talent Director at AlbionVC chat to Rachel Carrell, Founder and CEO Koru Kids.

Koru Kids is a London based childcare service which specialises in after school nannies and helps families find nanny shares.

We chat to Rachel about her journey of launching Koru Kids, discuss her leadership style and the importance of plugging into the founder community, before diving into the quick fire round and advice to her younger self.
