Luckily for women entrepreneurs seeking funding, the Pipeline Fund in NYC trains women angel investors - Apply for the program by December 1, 2010.
Are you a high net worth woman and want to learn how to support women entrepreneurs? BusinessWeek calls this "a boot camp for women angel investors.
The Pipeline Fund Fellowship in New York City is a program that trains women philanthropists to become angel investors through education (modules on due diligence, term sheets, valuations, board governance, etc.), mentoring (matching each participant with an experienced angel investor to serve as a role model), and practice (participants apply what they have learned to select women-led for-profit social ventures to invest in).
Ten participants will be accepted into the first cohort. Each participant commits to invest $5,000 (for a collective $50,000) to be invested in a woman-led for-profit social venture at the end of the training.
