At GingerMay, we are guiding and investing in female leaders who are creating the sustainability solutions of the future.
As part of our ESG strategy, we offer free mentoring opportunities and PR know-how to empower ClimateTech founders on their mission to inspire progress.
We are all responsible for educating, motivating, and supporting industries and businesses as they enact change. We will amplify the voice and media profiles of founders, as well as provide unique mentorship to build on their achievements.
The climate crisis affects us all
“The world is reaching the tipping point beyond which climate change may become irreversible. If this happens, we risk denying present and future generations the right to a healthy and sustainable planet – the whole of humanity stands to lose.”
Kofi Annan, Former Secretary-General of UN
Time is short. CO2 emissions and human activity are altering our planet. From extreme natural events to disrupted ecosystems, climate change is impacting all nations. We are at a critical juncture to reverse this impact and ensure a sustainable future for humanity.
Women are helping to lead the fight
“We see men with a concept on a napkin who can raise $10 million, and women with $5 million in annual recurring revenue still can’t raise a seed round.”
Pam Kostka, CEO of All Raise
Female entrepreneurs face significant challenges when it comes to growing their business and securing funding – and GingerMay wants to help. In 2019, start-ups led by women only received 2.8% of venture capital funding. In 2020, this figure dropped to 2.3%, despite strong evidence of women’s leadership acumen.
With investment pouring into climate technology five times faster than the overall growth of VC funding, now is a pivotal time to break down the barriers women face in the business landscape. This initiative is designed to uplift women on their paths to success.
Why this programme matters
“Saving our planet is now a communications challenge.”
By empowering female leaders across all sectors, GingerMay’s ESG strategy is helping ClimateTech organisations build their media profile, company voice, and commercial growth. From one-to-one mentoring sessions to unique PR and communications programmes that support business objectives, we will ensure they cut through the media noise and stand out from the competition.
