Melbourne Angels - Angels@Noon
Activity Description

We welcome everyone to join in the conversation. This is Angel investing Melbourne-style - it is fun, informative, friendly and a great precursor to the more serious times when we are reviewing deals and chasing exits for our founders.

Melbourne Angels invests in 20+ deals a year which puts us up there with the more active Angel groups in the world. Our members are professional and courteous in their conduct, impassioned and experienced in their pursuit of success for our portfolio companies and diverse and engaging in their areas of interest and intellectual horsepower.

This is your chance to get to know us, discover new trends, share your own experiences and explore how engaging with us as a member, or as a portfolio company can help change your life.

Our Speaker is Wendee Wolfson (USA Angel Pioneer)

Wendee has been an early-stage investor for nearly twenty-five years and she pioneered Angel groups for women last century. She is a founding member of Halcyon Angels in Washington, DC and is currently a lead investor for the Next Wave Impact Fund, an early-stage fund that invests in women-led for-profit social enterprises, and its predecessor pilot fund, Rising Tide. She helped Next Wave create the Founders of Color Showcases in 2020 and 2021, to highlight companies across the country being led by founders of color seeking early-stage financing, and to bring together potential investors to work collaboratively to bring capital to those entrepreneurs.
