Mother Investors: Angel Investing for Change

In a world of chaos and gender bias, we need to create the change we want to see. In the first half of 2019, 13 female CEOs took companies public, all backed by angel investors. This made a meaningful impact on the percentage of women running public companies in America.

A panel of two working moms from diverse backgrounds - both corporate employees turned entrepreneurs - now invested in startups, will discuss why they are focusing on the next wave of startups led by women and people of color. Their goal is simple — improve representation in the entrepreneurial landscape and propel the next generation of women who will change the world.
