A message from Katherine:

I am so excited to bring Female Funders to the world and hope that together we can empower the next generation of women angel investors. I am incredibly passionate about building this community because my entire journey as an entrepreneur would not have been possible without the support of my first angel investor, Heather Payne who put $10K into my company ShopLocket very early on.

For Heather and I the experience of angel investment was mutually beneficial — I learned as an entrepreneur and Heather learned as an investor. So much has happened since. In 2014, ShopLocket was acquired by PCH and I went on to be named one of Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women and one of 5 Women to Watch in Wearable Technology. I am now an active angel investors, and author.

By doing my part to build this community, I hope to empower more women around the world to make their first angel investments and raise capital to grow their businesses.

Why women angels should invest

Angel investors can — and often do — lose their entire investment. Angel investments should only be made if you can afford to lose the initial investment and should only be made as part of a larger investment plan.


Develop new skills, become a more savvy overall business person and investor, and find opportunities to explore new industries.


Become inspired by working with incredible women and men that are changing the world both as investors and entrepreneurs.


Have the satisfaction of knowing you’re directly helping entrepreneurs make their dreams a reality.


With a diverse portfolio , patience and consistency, angel investors can make significant returns on their investments. That said, early stage investing is high risk.
