The Pipeline Fellowship, an angel investing bootcamp for women philanthropists, just announced its expansion into Los Angeles and the Bay Area with a call for applications.
The propitious 6-month program trains women philanthropists to become angel investors through education, mentoring, and practice. Each Pipeline Fellow commits $5,000 to be invested in a woman-led for-profit social venture at the end of the training. In return for the investment, Pipeline Fellows get equity in the company and a board seat. Pipeline Fellows are also matched with a mentor, an experienced angel investor who serves as a role model.
Women invested in becoming a Fellow must meet the following three criteria:
- Satisfy one of the accredited investor definitions
- Be interested in the group learning model
- Have a passion for philanthropy and/or social change
The program will run September 2012 – March 2013, with applications being reviewed on a rolling basis and interviews commencing late July 2012.
