Women-focused Angel Investor Group

I recently read an article in the Akron Beacon Journal about Golden Seeds, a group primarily comprised of female women investors with a few offices on the East Coast in New York city (i.e., in Silicon Alley), Philadelphia, and Boston, and one office on the west coast, in San Francisco (i.e., in Silicon Valley).  From their website, "Golden Seeds is dedicated to empowering women financially, based on a commitment that diversity in business ownership and management improves corporate performance and creates a stronger economy."

Golden Seeds mainly invests in women-owned businesses, or rather, women-owned and women-controlled businesses. The companies they invest in have a woman at the helm as either the CEO or as a founder and CXO (COO, CFO, CTO, or CMO).  In other words, Golden Seeds invests in companies where a woman is the primary decision maker or plays a significant role in the decision-making process. This angel investor group has over 150 investors.


For more information, visit their website at http://www.goldenseeds.com/home/ . You can also check out the Sunday, April 24, 2011 "Business" section of the Akron Beacon Journal for a great article on some of the investments the group has made.
