Pipeline Fellowship is committed to changing the face of angel investing and creating capital for women social entrepreneurs.
In 2014 only 26% of U.S. angel investors were women and only 8% were minorities, according to the Center for Venture Research.
Pipeline Fellowship, an angel investing bootcamp for women, works to increase diversity in the U.S. angel investing community and creates capital for women social entrepreneurs.
Pipeline Fellowship has opened a call for applications for its fall 2015 programs in Albuquerque, Boulder, Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Las Vegas.
Candidates are encouraged to apply before Wednesday, August 12, 2015: http://pfapply.seamlessdocs.com/f/bootcamp
Pipeline Fellowship’s three main criteria are:
a) Meeting one of the accredited investor definitions (i.e., US$200K in income or US$300K joint income with spouse for the past two years, or US$1M net worth)
b) Interest in group learning model
c) Passion for philanthropy and/or social change
For most Pipeline Fellows, this is their first angel investment. They’re attracted by the program’s three components (education, mentoring, practice) and benefit from the diversity of each cohort. Pipeline Fellows are intergenerational, ranging from late twenties to over sixty, and come from a variety of professional backgrounds.
In the words of Pipeline Fellowship alumna Simone Castillo, “the Pipeline Fellowship is an invaluable experience. This program equips its participants with an essential angel investor toolkit while also providing access to a network of engaging philanthropists. I have gained savvy and insightful business partners, as well as lifelong friendships.”
