Dedicated to investing in diverse teams and providing female entrepreneurs with capital and resources, Simone Brummelhuis is the founder of Borski Fund and TheNextWomen.

Founded in 2019, the Borski Fund was built on the conviction that “the investment diversity gap is real and much larger than is often thought, however that there are also ways to help close it [...] We believe that improving access to financing for female entrepreneurs that are looking to contribute to a better world is one of the key ways of addressing the investment diversity gap.” 

Brummelhuis’s second organisation – TheNextWomen – was founded in 2009, the organisation provides female founders, professionals and investors access to knowledge, capital and networks. “We believe in new opportunities, new ideas, new perspectives and new exciting ventures.”

Brummelhuis has been recognised by The Guardian and Forbes as ‘one of the 10 Women to meet in Tech’ and one of the ‘20 women to follow on Twitter for Female Entrepreneurship and Business’, respectively.
