Unicorns, Zebras and Winning Money

Venture capitalists are failing to invest in female-led companies, how can things change?

Venture capitalists are failing to invest enough in female-led companies, but how can things change? The BBC's Regan Morris catches up with members of 'Zebras Unite' - a movement that wants to challenge the existing start-up and venture capital culture. They are wary of the tech industry's thirst for billion dollar 'unicorn' companies and believe that a change in the status quo is a 'moral imperative'.

Plus, Bill Morrow of investment platform Angels Den shares his thoughts on what needs to change in the industry. And finally, comedian and former management consultant Colm O'Regan casts his judgement on the animal jargon used in the business world.
