Angel Investors for Women: Women’s Equity Lab launches fund for Okanagan female startups

A group of Okanagan women has created an angel investment fund that it hopes will help more females get into the local business world.

Okanagan Women’s Mentoring and Angel Network, or WMAN, is part of the Women’s Equity Lab, which was founded in Victoria in 2017. WEL’s mission is to increase equal gender opportunity in the area of early stage investing, and it has so far launched three funds in Victoria and one in Vancouver.

Now it is coming to the Okanagan.
