“Information Sessions and Office Hours are wonderful opportunities for entrepreneurs to engage with Golden Seeds members, to learn about angel investing, to understand what we look for before we invest in a company, and to become familiar with our investment process. Even more importantly, these are opportunities for Golden Seeds to learn more about you and provide feedback on your idea!”
Golden Seeds is eager to meet women entrepreneurs who are in the early stages of launching their companies and who considering seeking funding. They may or may not yet be ready to apply for funding. We offer several ways to interact with experienced Golden Seeds investors. Currently, all meetings are being held virtually via Zoom. Read more below to learn about our offerings and decide which is right for you.
During an Information Session, an experienced Golden Seeds member leads a discussion with a group of entrepreneurs on the basics of angel funding and the Golden Seeds investment process. You will not receive feedback specific to your business plan during this meeting, but it is a great entryway to understanding the fundamentals of angel investing. All Founders of women-led companies, regardless of stage or location are welcome to attend an Information Session. If you want to attend an Info Session, register below.
Office Hours are unstructured discussions between Golden Seeds members and entrepreneurs. This opportunity is recommended particularly for companies that are likely to seek funding in the next 12 to 24 months. If you are considering applying for funding, we urge you to review our investment criteria, which appears on our website.
During the session, an experienced Golden Seeds member will provide an overview about funding and the Golden Seeds process, followed by an individual breakout session with one or more investors. We hold monthly Office Hours in all eight Golden Seeds chapters.

· Office Hours sessions involve no decisions about funding.

· These sessions are limited to companies with a female leader as either founder or in a C-level position.
We ask you to join the video conference session promptly. Please note that you might be placed in a waiting room until the facilitator joins the session.
If you cannot attend an Office Hours session for which you have registered, it is important to let us know at least 24 hours in advance. Remember that you have reserved a time slot that can be used by another entrepreneur.
