PEOPLE: Solai’s journey as an angel investor

In Australia, the majority of VC funds are founded and led by men, and globally, only 2% of investment dollars go to women. Yet, there are more women joining the investor community each year, including angel investor, Solai Valliappan. In this interview, Solai shares experiences with unconscious bias which she regularly experiences from other investors, while highlighting that some sectors demonstrate this more strongly than others. She’s also on the look-out for female-led companies and is always encouraging women to follow their gut and venture out on their own.
