15 of the UK’s fastest growing startups founded by women are on a trade mission to the Silicon Valley

Some of the UK’s fastest growing startups founded by women are heading across the pond to meet with top tech companies to build ties with Silicon Valley.

Entrepreneurs from 15 super high-growth companies looking for investment, or eyeing expansion to the US west coast, will meet with executives from Apple, Google, Instagram and LinkedIn on a fresh trade mission.

It comes as new research reveals how businesses led by women are driving the economy, adding £3bn over the past 12 months. The number of female-run firms with a turnover of as much as £250m grew by 14 per cent and they are growing on average by more than a quarter each year, according to the figures from LinkedIn and Founders4Schools.
