Since launching in 2011, Pipeline Angels has graduated over 300 members from its angel investing bootcamp and invested more than $5 million in 40+ companies as part of the pitch summit process.
This year, Dallas has another chance to get in on the action.
Pipeline Angels is a network of women and femme angel investors that intend to change the face of the industry by generating capital for female and non-binary social entrepreneurs. For those that might not have received support during the vital stages, Pipeline Angels Members aim to be the ‘friends and family round’ needed.
It’s all done through two signature programs, the bootcamp and the pitch summit, which are both headed to North Texas.
The pitch summit is the chance for entrepreneurs to present and receive funding for their for-profit social ventures. And the bootcamp is for new investors interested in earning Pipeline Angels Member status in order to stay engaged with the organization.
For two days a month for four months, bootcampers will attend a variety of events around social entrepreneurship. Expert-led workshops cover everything from portfolio strategies to measuring impact. Connections are made with season angel investors for mentorship opportunities and advice. And, each participant invests at least $5,000 into one or more ventures selected by the cohort at the end of the program.
In Dallas, there’s a specific cohort comprised of women angel investors, like Keisha Taylor, SVP of Integrated Marketing at Learfield.
Dallas is one of around 40 cities to host this year’s Pipeline Angels programs. Interested parties must meet the specific criteria, such as being a woman or non-binary femme or meeting one of the accredited investor definitions.
While the program isn’t until the spring, applications are open now, and priority will be given to eligible candidates who fill out the online application before Wednesday, Jan. 23.
Get on the list.
