BUSINESS-LIVE.CO.UK - Women Angels of the North was launched by Fund Her North in 2021 to help female founders raise money for their startups. The female angel syndicate has helped founders across the North to raise ~£2.4M for 6 businesses, including Safer Date, Atelerix, Rarecan, Chu Lo and Dear Bump. Safer Date was the recipient of the group's first funding round and has recently closed on its second round of funding with the help of Women Angels of the North. Safer Date was founded by Elaine Parker following a harrowing online dating experience with a man that had a long history of domestic abuse. Safer Date verifies all its members. The app initially raised £225K in October 2021.
