Highline BETA, a startup co-creation and new venture development company headquartered in Toronto, has announced the relaunch of Female Funders Angel Academy, an accelerator program designed to guide women corporate and technology executives through the process of becoming angel investors.

Currently, only 6% of deal-making VCs and 20% of angel investors are women.

Highline BETA acquired Female Funders in July of last year to accelerate the learning curve for the next generation of female investors, and the program’s launch comes with a few notable changes.

The revamped Female Funders Angel Academy, created in partnership with National Angel Capital Organization (NACO) sets a new standard of education in angel investing. The 8-week, self-paced program covers the fundamentals of angel investing, including the mechanics of a successful deal and effectively sourcing high-potential startups.

In the year following the program, Academy members will have the opportunity to write their first investment cheques with support and guidance from Female Funders’ advisors, and to co-invest alongside Highline BETA.
