Programming For Women Angels
In honour of International Women’s Day, Angel Investors Ontario along with The Firehood, and The DMZ are bringing together the women’s entrepreneurial community to highlight women-led start-ups and give them an opportunity to secure investment to help grow their businesses. Investments will be announced for the winning pitch(s) on March 1st.
On Feb 15th, 2023 the 50 selected women founders will deliver a 3-minute pitch in front of a panel of judges and angels at a virtual event. Selection of the top 10 will take place between Feb 15-19th.
10 founders will then be selected to pitch Wednesday, March 7th, 2023 at the DMZ headquarters.
Women Angel Investors are invited to join The Firehood as a cohort of up to 50 women angels to participate in the selection process, reviewing pitches and investment in the winning women founder. Investment is subject to due diligence.
We have a specialized AIO Angel Track set up to help you along the journey from pitch to cheque- whether this is your first investment or tenth! Four Workshops will take in February and March to cover all key topics as you review and select from 50 founders down to 10 and conduct due diligence on the highest potential startups likely to secure your investment.
We are proud to partner with Canadian Women in VC to support the content and curation of speakers for this series. Sign up below to join one or all of Angel Investing Seminars!
