Today I’m attending the first Bay Area Pipeline Fellowship Conference. The Pipeline Fellowship Conference is an all-day event on angel investing open to the public. Speakers include serial entrepreneurs, experienced angel investors, and VCs.
The Pipeline Fellowship trains women philanthropists to become angel investors through education, mentoring, and practice. Fellows commit to invest in a woman-led for-profit social venture in exchange for equity and a board seat.
