    By Jane Wang (Software Engineer, Etsy)

    Funding is a tough nut to crack for many first-time entrepreneurs, and even a tougher nut for those from atypical backgrounds, such as minorities, women, LGBT members.

    Women Entrepreneurs: Step Up To The Plate

    An angel investing bootcamp for women philanthropists.

    By Natalia Oberti Noguera (Founder & CEO, Pipeline Fellowship)

    Women entrepreneurs don’t pitch as often as their male peers.
    I encourage women to step up to the plate, whether it’s asking for capital to fund their startup, or asking for a raise at work. In 2011, only 12% of startups pitching to angels in the U.S. were women-led, according to the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire. Out of that 12%, 26% secured funding.

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    Founding partner at 500 Startups Dave McClure wants every woman in tech to become an angel investor, saying “Stop talking about the problem and become part of the solution.” He challenges women working in the technology sector who either drive a nice car, own a nice house or earn over $125k a year to become an angel investor – and invites you to accept his challenge to make three (3) investments of $5k each in a startup businesses this year.

    This Is What An Angel Investor Looks Like – Erica Frontiero

    Women 2.0 profiles women (from angel investors to venture capitalists) who invest in women.

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    15% of angel investors are women and 11% of investment partners at venture capital firms are women. Women investors are more apt to be directly connected to and able to attract female-led ventures, and investors invest in women where there are women to be found.

    Let’s increase the pipeline of women angel investors and venture capitalists. From the Pipeline Fellowship which trains women philanthropists to become angel investors to Golden Seeds‘s investor training for future angels, there are multiple ways to onramp investors. Also, AngelList could use more active women
