(Angel) Investing in Women
Creating an environment in which women-owned businesses and investors can thrive is essential to the innovation and diversity of entrepreneurial success. When women begin investing, even in small amounts, they can shift the world. Mary Anderson will educate participants on the steps to take to become investors, how to approach and present to angel investors, and what angel investors look for in a start-up.
