Pipeline Angels Summer Session

Pipeline Angels announces 2018 summer angel investing bootcamps
Fri, Jun 15 10:00 AM - Wed, Jul 11 12:00 PM EDT
This summer, with the help of local organizations (including Grupo Guayacán, Parallel18, Santurce POP, and Animus), Pipeline Angels will be launching its signature angel investing bootcamp in San Juan, Puerto Rico to support the island's founders and economy while working to double the number of Latinx angel investors nationwide (a Wharton and Angel Capital Association study found that only 2.3% of U.S. angel investors are Latinx).
Not based in Puerto Rico? We encourage you to apply--become an angel investor, power the local economy, and help us unleash more capital for Boricuan founders.
Pipeline Angels has a rolling application process. Priority will be given to candidates who fill out our short online application before Friday, June 15, 2018.
Since Pipeline Angels launched April 2011, over 300 members have graduated from our angel investing bootcamp and have invested more than US$5M in 50+ companies via our pitch summit process. Our members serve as the friends and family round for entrepreneurs who may not already have support at that critical stage.
I always said, "Someday, I will be an angel investor," while never taking the steps toward it. Pipeline Angels made that day a reality. I learned the ropes of angel investing while connecting with a community of successful women and femmes. I am just getting started building my investment portfolio.

I joined Pipeline Angels because I wanted to be proactive about closing the funding gap for women and non-binary femme entrepreneurs. Through my Pipeline Angels experience, I gained the knowledge, tools, and confidence to make my first investment; developed a valuable network of fellow angel investors; and tapped into a pipeline of future investment opportunities. Pipeline Angels represents what I care about--action, impact, equity, and change.
