New Okanagan Women’s Investor Fund to Aid Women Owned Businesses in Economy Recovery

Twenty-five women have formed a new Okanagan angel investment fund that will focus on correcting the gender imbalance faced by women owned businesses when seeking investment and increase the number of women who are active start-up company investors.

“To mark International Women’s Day, the new Okanagan Women’s Mentoring and Angel Network (WMAN) will begin accepting applications from women founded, led or co-led businesses from the Okanagan region,” says Co-founder and General Partner, Camille Saltman. “Our goal is to increase the number of women angel investors, remedy the gender gap in start-up funding and aid women business owners who are bearing the brunt of economic fallout from the pandemic.”
