FIG­URE 12: GEN­DER DIS­TRI­BU­TION AMONG FOUNDERS

Last year’s In­vest­ment Re­port tack­led the ques­tion of gen­der di­ver­sity in tech­nol­ogy star­tups. Look­ing at the MENA re­gion as a whole, not much has changed in terms of fe­male rep­re­sen­ta­tion. The pre­vi­ous anal­y­sis in­di­cated that fe­males rep­re­sent 13% of all founders, while this year’s up­dated data demon­strates that fe­male rep­re­sen­ta­tion is 14% - roughly 1 in 6 - of all founders/co­founders of in­vestor-backed busi­nesses in MENA.
