Golden Seeds is one of the largest angel networks in the United States and seeks to advance female entrepreneurship. I was introduced to this amazing network by fellow Louper Holly Z., who is bringing her incredible and distinguished Wall Street skill set to this organization. At the time of its founding in 2005, only 3% of venture capital was allocated to women entrepreneurs. Thankfully, that number has increased to 23% as of 2015, but there is still a long way to go. The idea is that Members have the opportunity to attend a monthly forum where vetted/analyzed companies are presented and individuals can then determine whether they would like to learn more and/or make an investment. The meeting I attended had some very interesting early stage companies with some very creative female entrepreneurs at their helm. By planting these golden seeds, anything is possible!
