I was asked to speak at Portfolia and the Angel Capital Association event in Boston this year. I have been asked for several years and this year I made the journey for the day. Truth is, I had no idea how large these organizations are and the impact that each of them has made. I left insanely impressed.
Each of these organizations are angel investor networks. They have educated angels, created a community around angels and have put their money into a variety of companies of every vertical as the communities interests are broad. I met some incredible women and men who want to make an impact with their dollars and that impact is anything from seeing more diversity at the table to being involved in new technologies surrounding the industries that they have deep knowledge in.
