After having created more than 70 networks of female managers in 2 years across France, the Women’s Business network continues to grow.
Created in 2017 by Marie Eloy, Bouge ta Boite aims to move the lines of women’s entrepreneurship. The start-up concretely supports the growth of women-led businesses and gives visibility to women entrepreneurs in the territories.
Today, Bouge ta Boite federates 900 women leaders throughout France.
With this new round, Marie Eloy joins the low percentage of women who raised funds this year.
In 2018, women received only 2.2% of venture capital funding worldwide (source: Sista nov 18).
Only 12.5% of start-ups raising funds in 2018 were led by women (source: StartHer and KPMG).
Bouge ta Boite had completed a €400K first round of financing in March 2018 with Gonzague de Blignières, Guillaume Richard and Socomore Ventures.
Today BNP Paribas Développement, Breizh Up, Sofiouest, Mylène Romano, Gonzague de Blignières, Jean-Pierre Letartre and Thibaut Bechetoille have chosen to support and participate in the development of this unique network, to the tune of €1.3 million.
Thanks to this fund raising, Bouge ta Boite will strengthen its team and consolidate its growth, notably through the digitalisation and diversification of its offer.
