About this Event

The Time To Invest In Female Founders, Is Now

Give a woman a fish and she eats for a day. Teach a woman to fish and she eats for a lifetime. And when one woman teaches another and another and another to fish, we all eat and the world changes exponentially. - Carolyn Jean The Option Queen

Women currently receive less than 3% of all funding, this has to stop NOW! It will change when women vote their money and are able to sit on the other side of the table to invest their money in HER.

DyMynd Angels is hosting one hour lunches on July 19th, August 20th, September 19th and October 21st! You will be introduce to and learn from the Women within the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem, the Entrepreneurs and the women who make the funding decisions.

Guest Speakers

  1. Key Trends and who is getting funded
  2. VC Funding Through The Gender Lens

Nancy Picard Ph.D, CEO and Founder at Memory Beach

This is an evolution of Angel Investing by women and for women. So each luncheon will have an expert speaker discussing various facets of #WomenFundingWomen, an Entrepreneur who will share her story, why she is launching her business, the problem she is solving and her experience within the ecosystem and her access to capital.

The Angel Evolution Is About:

Other DyMynd & DyMynd Angel Educational Events for Your Financial Empowerment

At DyMynd Angels we are creating a world in which women can invest in women.

Women invest differently than men and we embrace it! When thinking of angel initiatives, most think of being an Angel Investor. Angel Investors are accredited investors within a traditional angel network who invest in early stage start-ups. Women do not often see themselves as traditional Angel Investors. In fact, they see angel investing as a “boy’s club.”

At DyMynd Angels we are creating a new table for Female Funders. We are not sitting at the boys table anymore. We have remodeled their table long enough. We have created new legs, extended it, and added new chairs and still there is not enough room for women to sit down with Clarity, Comfort, and Confidence. Simply put, it is time to evolve the game, all together.
