Pipeline Fund explores “training up” new women angels

Thanks to an interesting NYT article, I learned of the Pipeline Fund, an organization dedicated to helping aspiring women angels become extremely succesful women angels investing in woman-backed social ventures…

The overwhelmingly male field of angel investing is about to become a bit more diverse. Ten women, including some business owners (TechCrunch has the full list), will soon learn the secrets of angel investing during the Pipeline Fund Fellowship’s inaugural six-month program for aspiring female angels.

There are far too few women in angel investing and far too little mentoring of new angels. This sounds like a fascinating experiment. And what’s more, some time as passed since the original article and a new article reports on progress.

Good luck Pipeline Fund!
