While Fellows come from a variety of backgrounds, they all share a common interest in learning to invest for good. The Pipeline Fellowship trains women philanthropists to become angel investors through education, mentoring, and practice. In addition to an all-day conference, the program’s educational components include a series of workshops on topics such as portfolio strategies, due diligence, and valuation. Each fellow is also paired with an experienced angel investor who serves as a role model and a sounding board, sharing feedback and advice. Lastly, the fellows put their education to work by selecting and investing in a woman-led, for-profit social venture.

Founded by Bouton 10 years ago, Koya Leadership Partners is a nationally recognized executive search firm committed to collaborating with nonprofit organizations to recruit and retain exceptionally talented and diverse professionals who will make a lasting impact.
