WHAT IS SHE ANGELS?!
With less than 5% of traditional funding going to women entrepreneurs - we have created a way to help female business owners get ahead - it is called SHE ANGELS, as in angel investors!
The SHE ANGELS event and TV Web series are designed to energize and inspire the participants, the panelists, and the audience who attend the event and watches the series! It takes a village and you can be a part of this fearless initiative to empower more women business owners!
Here is a peek at last year’s event and TV Web series hosted by the extraordinary and world-renowned Actress Susan Anton!
The successful SHE ANGELS investor panelists are giving back and paying it forward by funding, mentoring and guiding entrepreneurs in various industries to thrive and succeed. Like last year, our panelist will be a combination of prominent successful business women and celebrities who believe in championing forward innovative female entrepreneurs. Over 100k in cash and services at stake in the competition!
