Pipeline Angels is changing the face of angel investing and creating capital for women and non-binary femme social entrepreneurs.
Since Pipeline Angels launched in April 2011, close to 400 members have graduated from their angel investing bootcamp and have invested more than US$6M in 70+ companies via their pitch summit process. Members serve as the friends and family round for entrepreneurs who may not already have support at that critical stage.
Pipeline Angels members serve as the friends and family round for entrepreneurs who may not have the friends or family for this round, providing a critical early capital injection to get these businesses through the pipeline.
Our signature angel investing bootcamp for new investors includes three main components: education, mentoring, and practice.
Bootcamp workshops are conducted on topics ranging from due diligence, valuation, portfolio strategies, and measuring impact. The workshops are led by experts, including seasoned angel investors, VCs, and impact investing professionals. Participants are also matched with seasoned angel investors who share best practices and lessons learned.
