    how to grow

    their wealth wisely 

    There are 108,000,000 adult women in the US,
    yet only 0.06% (or 6 tenths of 1%)
    are angel investors. 


    Don't you think it's time we raise this number?


     

    Women can learn to become expert angel investors
    in startup companies

    Women have been socialized to believe that they are not good at investment decisions. 

    Research finds otherwise.

    Women INVEST in other Women

    Women have the networks and expertise to impact startups. Yes, the growth of the female entrepreneur is on the rise, but without representation on both sides of the table — entrepreneurs and investors — we won't see real change. When women are stronger financially,

    so is the economy and society.

    investHER Academy is a 3 ½ month program, after which the learning never ends. While investHER Academy is designed for women, we believe success can only come from an inclusive structure/environment: women & men working together to change the mindset of the world.  

    We have designed a course that will help you become an expert over time, giving you the knowledge to make the best financial investments and lasting connections with your fellow investHERs.

    If you cannot commit to a 3 1/2 month program right now, but want to start your investment journey, we offer an introductory course that you can view at your pace and time.

     

    A woman earning $85k a year starting at the age of 30 will have about $320,000 less (due to the gender pay gap) than her male counterpart when she retires at age 67. Not only could her money last 6 years less than his, she’s also likely to live 3 to 5 years longer.

    According to a Willis Tower Watson survey, 60% of men ranked saving for retirement as their top financial priority compared to 44% of women.

                                               Why Angel Invest?
    1. Build a legacy of which you can be proud.

     

    2. Make money: Angel investing has historically returned at significantly

    higher rates (28-32% per year) than public stock market indices (8-10%). 

    3. Make a difference: Investing in startups that eventually employ dozens or hundreds of people, angel investors can change the economic future of a region.

    What angel investors say...

    “This [angel investing] is one of the most powerful things you can do with your money. 

    Women globally have little-to-no access to capital. Growing companies is growing jobs, increasing net worth, changing the calculus of not having equal pay. You don’t need an MBA. Jump in.”

    “Part of owning our power as women is to take responsibility for our financial investments. We can use money as a tool for creating a healthy future for the planet and empower our own financial well-being.”

    Executive Director of Private Investors Forum, Entrepreneur, Speaker & Author

    Marc Kramer

    “According to Forbes, women only receive 14% of investment capital, yet there are so many professionally successful women that can change that equation once they learn how the startup investment game is played.  Angel and Robert Padulo are entrepreneurs and angel investors that have successfully played the game.  They have developed a platform to teach smart successful women how to enhance their personal portfolios while helping women entrepreneurs achieve their dreams."

     “Research indicates women are better investors in the long run, so we need to reinforce that.”
