What Is Angel Academy?

An educational investor accelerator program designed for female leaders in the corporate and technology sectors.

  • Curious about the next step in your investing journey?

  • Want to shape the future as an innovative early-stage investor?

  • Ready to play a crucial role in an early-stage company?

Many women have the expertise, experience, and capital to be an investor — but don’t know where to start. Angel Academy is the key that unlocks the mystery of the investment process. Through online learning modules, practical examples, and mentorship you will gain the tools, knowledge, and community to confidently build your first investment plan.

Join our next collaborative cohort of powerhouse women around North America to develop your successful path to investing.

5% female investors and 3% of funds to female founders – this needs to change. Joining Angel Academy was my way to make a difference with the knowledge and network to start investing in early-stage ventures.
