Join with your colleagues for an exclusive event celebrating the growing group of women angel investors. Participate in discussions, learning and networking with new and experienced women angels building robust portfolios. 

Starting with an evening session and reception and continuing through a keynote luncheon, presentations and discussions with key industry professionals will cover a broad range of angel investing topics and pinpoint the influence that women angels bring to the table.

Connect with programming for women angels in both the early stages of angel investing as well as more experienced “super angels.” As always, there will be plenty of opportunity for great networking.
