Anna WilsonI joined Pipeline Angels to participate in a forum where I could learn the ins and outs of angel investing from a variety of perspectives and actually put these learnings to the test by making a real investment in an early-stage company. The women in my cohort represent an incredibly diverse set of personal and career experiences, each bringing with them a unique perspective on what social enterprise means, what their individual investment strategy should look like, and what character traits are attractive to them in a founder. In addition, we bring different areas of domain expertise and negotiation styles to the table so it has been fascinating to learn what makes everyone tick and how to most effectively reach a consensus on a topic so personal as angel investing.

Bill Schnoor Pipeline Angels’ mission of empowering women to become angel investors fills an extraordinary gap in the marketplace. There are women starting companies, we’d like to see more, but there certainly are some. But, the notion of having a track devoted to encouraging women to help other women by being investors we thought was novel and that the time was right for it.
