Invest like a woman
WE Angels is a membership-based angel investing club led by women who aim at investing in seed/early-stage gender-diverse startups with high scaling and growth potential.

Our Values

  • Transparency
  • Gender – diversity
  • Transformational leadership through gender diversity
  • Merit-based
  • Equal Opportunity
  • Independent organization
  • Open collaboration

We come after “fools, friends and family” and before other institutional investors or VC Funds.

We invest in genderdiverse founders in seed/early stage startups and their ability and capacity to dare to change the world around them.

General Criteria for the selection of startups

Pre-requisites

  • Gender diversity in leadership
  • Established startup entity
  • Startups looking for seed-investments (50 to 100K)
  • Software-based and/or demonstrated ability to become scalable/replicable

Ideally, the founders have Team demonstrated previous experience in business and/or come from a background that makes them familiar with business.

Team

  • The founders have a big vision and are missiondriven;
  • Founders/leaders in the startup team are courageous, collaborative and have a learning mindset
  • Founders are committed and at least one of them is dedicated at a minimum 80% of the time to the startup

  • Diversity of skills in leadership and operations (for example: technical person, business developer, marketing/communication…)

WE Angels looks at startups with fast growth, the potential to address big markets and are focused on acquiring markets and developing scalable and replicable models.

Software technology/digital media needs to be embedded in the core of the solution developed by the gender-diverse startups in order for it to be scalable. In addition, ideal startups to be screened and evaluated will have:

  • Industries of focus: Digital media
